MGM Mirage celebrates grand opening of Las Vegas complex 

After five years, the ribbon has been cut on the MGM Mirage’s CityCenter in Las Vegas. Gensler was selected to lead the project’s seven design architects and hundreds of consultants to deliver this city-scaled mixed use development.

The 67 acre built environment comprises four separate hotels, a retail and entertainment district and residential towers, and is the world’s largest LEED Gold-certified development, garnering six certifications for the various project components. CityCenter is placed between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo Resorts on the Las Vegas Strip and is a joint venture between MGM MIRAGE and Infinity World Development Corp, a subsidiary of Dubai World.

Bobby Baldwin, President and CEO, CityCenter said: “This is the future of Las Vegas — CityCenter is in an entirely new category. To achieve what we wanted, in the time span we wanted, we knew we’d have to bring on a single firm with unparalleled visionary talent that could undertake such an extraordinary effort. Gensler stepped up to that challenge, and CityCenter is a testament to that.”

J.F. Finn, Gensler principal and CityCenter Project Executive commented: “CityCenter is the design equivalent of the Japanese game of Go, only in three dimensions. With all the components running in parallel, one modification could trigger dozens of impacts that had to be addressed and resolved.”
