MGM Mirage rolls dice

New 66-acre effort will hold the Project CityCenter

LAS VEGAS — Gaming company MGM Mirage announced Wednesday plans to build a behemoth multiuse urban metropolis to be located on the Strip south of Flamingo Road between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo hotels.

The 66-acre effort will hold the Project CityCenter, a megabillion-dollar development that will dramatically alter the Las Vegas landscape with its own streets, homes, hotels and tourist attractions.

With its first phase skedded to open in 2010, the 18 million-square-foot project will be home to a 4,000-room hotel/casino, three small boutique hotels, retail shops, dining venues and entertainment. The site also will hold 1,650 condominium units divided between several structures.

MGM Mirage spokeswoman Jenn Michaels said via telephone: “We are interviewing and talking to architects from around the world to be involved with various elements of the project. It is impossible to speculate what will be where until the design and development phase(s) are completed.”

After 18 months, MGM Mirage expects to break ground on the project and will also pick its hotel and residential partners. Mirage Resort prexy and CEO Bobby Baldwin will oversee Project CityCenter while continuing his current duties.
