VEGAS' CITYCENTER OPENS DOORS TO WORLD'S MOST SPECTACULAR OFFERINGS IN ONE SINGULAR SETTING, DECEMBER 2009
Landmark Destination to Introduce New Generation of Las Vegas Resort Experiences
LAS VEGAS – September 16, 2009 – /PRNewswire/ — In just three short months, the world will be introduced to CityCenter. An extraordinary urban resort destination brought to life by eight world-renowned architects, CityCenter will debut a new era of resort experiences with an ambition to refine and redefine Las Vegas.
Conceived to bring a true center to The Strip, CityCenter will be much more than a collection of resorts and residences; it's a community – a welcoming environment for people to gather, relax and enjoy. Great pedestrian corridors, dynamic public spaces, authentic richness and diversity of experiences will evoke the energy of the world's most exciting places. CityCenter's public Fine Art Collection will enliven the street and engage passersby. As if in a strolling gallery, guests will happen upon works by world-renowned artists such as Maya Lin or Nancy Rubins as they wander through CityCenter's walkways, hotels and residences.
A true community also has regard for its surroundings. Upon opening, CityCenter will be one of the largest sustainable developments in existence, bringing a new level of environmental consciousness to the world-famous Strip. The U.S. Green Building Council already has awarded Gold LEED® certification to ARIA's hotel tower, convention center and theater; as well as Vdara Hotel. CityCenter's remaining venues are poised to receive a combination of Silver and Gold LEED® ratings.
"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," said Bobby Baldwin, president and CEO, CityCenter. "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."
