When completed in 2009, CityCenter will be one of the great urban places of the world, a reflection of the best of the life that we're living today and tomorrow. It will be a place of continual evolution, richness and diversity; a place people from around the world will desire to visit and experience.
Across the country and throughout the world, people are rediscovering the excitement of the city. The city is where the people are, where the action is, and where all that's thrilling and new comes together, whoever you are. Las Vegas will soon have its own urban core: a 76-acre city-within-a-city that's destined to redefine the skyline. It will be an urban setting unlike any other in the United States. Or, really, anywhere. CityCenter.
CityCenter could only exist in Las Vegas; and only MGM MIRAGE, the world's premier developer of destination resorts, could build it. No other developer has the vision to realize such a forward-thinking project with the same care and attention - or the experience to offer hotels, retail and amenities that will exceed the high expectations for which MGM MIRAGE is known throughout the world.
No other developer has the depth of talent and resources to mastermind a project of comparable scale - a project that will literally reshape the Las Vegas skyline and create a new international destination for entertainment, dining, nightlife, retail, art and design. And few other developers have shown the same level of commitment to sustainable design, creating a place that people will appreciate and enjoy for decades to come.
