New images show what James Packer's Crown Limited has in store for WA's biggest and most luxurious hotel.

Private gaming suites, extensive new swimming pool areas, all-day poolside dining, lobby bars and a "Crystal Club" VIP area are components of the proposed $570 million Crown Towers hotel to be built adjacent to existing facilities at Burswood.

The images are contained amid hundreds of pages of detailed technical documents submitted to Gaming Minister Terry Waldron by Crown as it seeks planning approval.

The plans were made public after they were tendered in evidence in the WA Supreme Court.

Crown has utilised the services of at least nine architecture, design and other consulting firms, led by Las Vegas and Macau-headquartered casino design specialists YWS.

Landscaping for the huge new pool area, which will extend north from Crown's existing pool, has been designed by global giant Hassell.

Private VIP gaming suites will feature massage chairs for high-stakes, big-punting "whales" amid wood-panelled walls and dark-hued carpets lit by chandeliers.

Guest rooms feature extensive use of gold tones in their fixtures and furnishings, including marbled floors in bathrooms and standalone tubs overlooking city views and the Swan River. Documentation submitted to Mr Waldron shows a 33-month construction and commissioning program.

Under the development agreement between Crown and the State Government, construction is supposed to start by the end of this month.

However, Justice Andrew Beech is set to hand down a Supreme Court ruling within weeks that could throw the project into uncertainty.
