Project CityCenter Moves Closer To Reality

MGM Mirage officials have assembled a who's-who list of architects for its $5 billion CityCenter project that the company hopes not only transforms the Strip into an urban hub but sets a new international design standard.

Names like Rafael Vinoly, Norman Foster, James KM Cheng and Cesar Pelli, the architect behind the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, will handle the design elements of the massive project, which includes a 60-story, 4,000-room hotel-casino, two boutique hotels and 1,640 luxury condos.

MGM Mirage Inc. Chairman Terry Lanni and other company executives envision the Strip evolving into a Park Avenue one day, where people live and work and not just gamble and leave. The CityCenter is required if Las Vegas wants to continue attracting visitors, Lanni said.
