MGM MIRAGE Project CityCenter, which cost approximately $10 billion to build, is an unprecedented sustainable vertical city in the heart of Las Vegas.
The development features a stunning 60-story, 4,000-room hotel/casino, two 400-room, non-gaming hotels, about 500,000 SF of retail shops, dining and entertainment venues and 1,640 luxury condominium units.
Leo A Daly was the Architect-of-Record for a mixed-use and high-rise residential portion (Vdara) of Project CityCenter. Vdara is a $2 billion high-rise residential building that has received LEED® Gold Certification. This building, along with CityCenter’s Aria towers, are the two largest hotels to received LEED® Gold Certification. Although the original certification target was Silver, all areas of the comprehensive approach to sustainability were achieved as recognized by the Gold Certification.
"CityCenter bridges the vitality of Las Vegas with the experiences travelers seek when they visit great cities around the world, whether London, Hong Kong or San Francisco - spectacular architecture, culturally significant art, great public spaces, sophisticated hotels, unique restaurants and incredible amenities. It is an evolutionary destination that aims to transform Las Vegas as a new symbol at its core, like the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the Pompidou in Paris or the SONY Center in Berlin."Winning Streak, 12/4/09
