CITYCENTER NEARS COMPLETION AS IT TOPS OUT FINAL RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT, VEER TOWERS

LAS VEGAS – May 20, 2009 – CityCenter is celebrating a milestone with the recent “topping out” of its dramatically inclining high-rise condominiums, Veer Towers, CityCenter’s only pure residential offering.

Preceded by Vdara Hotel, ARIA Resort & Casino and Mandarin Oriental, Veer Towers includes CityCenter’s fourth and fifth high-rise structures and the final residential component to be topped out in preparation of the urban resort destination’s opening later this year.
“The topping out of Veer Towers signifies the final stages of construction for CityCenter as we progress toward its grand opening just months from now,” said Bobby Baldwin, president and CEO of CityCenter. “Veer Towers’ cutting-edge architecture defines the core of CityCenter’s unique urban design. Inclined at five-degree angles – a feature celebrated by the development’s name – the towers will no doubt be an attraction in and of themselves when CityCenter debuts later this year.”

Designed by Helmut Jahn, Veer Towers will be a masterful translation of energy and excitement into physical form; its two glass towers will shimmer day and night and rise above Crystals, CityCenter’s retail and entertainment district. The overall lobby environment, with soaring ceiling heights, will showcase the beauty of its architecture with dramatic glass walls flooded with light, metal statements, exposed concrete walls and modern artwork. Veer residences will be filled with contemporary features and designer-selected fixtures. Open floor plans will feature floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows that capture spectacular views of Las Vegas and the surrounding CityCenter. Light-filled rooms, natural textures and a range of neutral palettes will infuse streamlined interiors with openness. Modern kitchens, living and dining areas will be ideal for entertaining and spacious spa-styled bathrooms will invite retreat.

Veer’s most compelling attribute will be its striking rooftop amenity floor. Positioned atop each striking 37-story tower, residents will enjoy an amenities floor featuring an unequaled view of Las Vegas complemented by an infinity-edge pool, hot tub, sun deck and patio for outdoor entertaining. Within, Veer will feature a media room; game room; screening room; fitness center with panoramic views; and men’s and women’s separate changing rooms, steam rooms and saunas. Veer’s west tower also will boast a business center and boardroom for residents who wish to conduct business from home.
Owners of Veer residences will enjoy access to the full spectrum of MGM MIRAGE properties in Las Vegas. Benefits include preferred access to MGM MIRAGE’s unequaled resorts, restaurants, entertainment, special events, nightlife, shopping, and golf and spa offerings.
Charting a new course for responsible growth in Las Vegas, MGM MIRAGE is pursuing the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification at CityCenter. Designed with the environment in mind, Veer residences will feature extensive natural light, dramatically reducing lighting power requirements, and water-saving fixtures throughout. Its glass façades and fins will provide shade from the sun, diverting heat and enhancing circulation of cool air to promote energy-efficient climate control.
Veer Towers is part of CityCenter, a dazzling vertical city set on 67 acres between Bellagio and Monte Carlo resorts. A joint venture between MGM MIRAGE (NYSE: MGM) and Infinity World Development Corp, a subsidiary of Dubai World, the urban development will feature ARIA, a soaring 61-story, 4,004-room resort casino; three non-gaming hotels including Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, Vdara Hotel and The Harmon Hotel (opening 2010); approximately 2,400 luxury residences; a resident Cirque du Soleil show celebrating the legacy of Elvis Presley; and Crystals, a 500,000-square-foot retail and entertainment district.
