Boardwalk Ba-Boom Countdown: May 2006

The Boardwalk hotel-casino is set to close as early as May 2006, paving the way for MGM Mirage's planned CityCenter high-rise project. The Strip gaming giant plans to build the $6 billion, 18-million-square foot development on the 66-acre Boardwalk site between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo hotel-casinos.

MGM Mirage senior vice president Alan Feldman declined to comfirm a time frame for the property's closure. Most of the Boardwalk's 750 employees had yet to learn of the pending closure. MGM Mirage acquired the aging south Strip property when it purchased Steve Wynn's Mirage Resorts five years ago.
