Living on the Las Vegas Strip - MGM CityCenter Condos

Besides adding a spectacular new 60 story casino and mega hotel to the Las Vegas skyline, the MGM CityCenter, located on 66 prime acres between the Bellagio Hotel and the Monte Carlo Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, will also be home to four outstanding contemporary condo developments from some of the world's most renowned architects. Individually, each of these developments is world-class and innovative, but taken together they will redefine Las Vegas.

The Harmon Hotel and Residences will bring the ultimate in hip and trendy to the MGM City Center project. Designed by Foster and Partners, The Harmon will be operated by Andrew Sassoon's Light Group, one of the leading nightclub and bar management companies in the country, which also operates "Light" in the Bellagio, one of Las Vegas' most popular clubs. The Harmon, a "lifestyle" hotel, will define urban living on the Strip and deliver top-flight services and amenities. Atop the Harmon hotel suites there will also be 228 luxury condo residences catering to the ultra chic and young celebrities.

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Residences will mix the prestige of an internationally renowned resort brand and its unparalleled level of amenities with a world-class, five star hotel and residential experience. Located on the south side of the MGM City Center project and fronting the famed Las Vegas Strip, the Mandarin Oriental owners are offered custom-made services and amenities to complement their lifestyle - condominium owners are treated as permanent guests and every whim is catered to. In addition to hotel suites, The Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas will offer 227 luxury residential units on its top floors, and will be the most lavish and costly of the projects four residential elements. The hotel was designed by KPF architects in collaboration with top interior designer Adam Tihany who is noted for extraordinary projects world-wide.

The Veer residential condos will be ideally located in the center of the MGM CityCenter's retail district. The two distinctive leaning glass towers will rise 36 feet and house more than 700 modern loft-like residences. The building's surface will feature horizontal metal blades that slowly change color during the day and that will shade floor-to-ceiling windows from the burning Las Vegas heat. The design will challenge engineers working on the project, but residents will enjoy less obstructed views than would be possible in a more conventional high rise.The towers are the creation of noted German architect Helmut Jahn, known for sleek, ultramodern exteriors and unusual shapes. Jahn said he welcomes the chance to ply his trade in a town that encourages the unexpected. "I don't think we could have done this in Chicago or New York," where urban, residential construction follows a fairly conservative pattern, he said.

Vdara will be the elegant 50 story luxury condo hotel tower rising from the MGM CityCenter project designed by RV Architecture and Rafael Vinoly. In muted shades of ebony, the Vdara tower will feature 1543 fully furnished condo hotel suites ideally located between the Bellagio Hotel and Casino and the CityCenter's main gaming resort. In addition, Vdara will also be a stop on the new The interiors will feature subtle understated decor, wide open floor plans and floor to ceiling walls of glass with spectacular views of the city.
