LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — MGM-Mirage has released the details of its planned $4 billion development called Project CityCenter, a large-scale redevelopment project slated for a large open lot directly on the Las Vegas strip.
The project will include a 4,000-room hotel and casino as the main attraction.
The company has hired architect Cesar Pelli to design the facility, which will avoid the “faux castles, pyramids, jungles and city knockoffs that make up the giant themed resorts along the Strip,” instead focusing on the architecture, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“When you don’t have a theme, the attraction of the building has to rest in the beauty of the architecture,” Pelli told the paper.
Pelli’s description of the plans involve two soaring glass towers, over 60 stories high. The glass will give guests “extraordinary views” of the Strip and the stark desert that lies in the distance.
The complex will also include a 2,000-seat theater where MGM plans a new Cirque du Soleil production. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
