CityCenter's Stunning Residential Sales Pavilion Opens on the Las Vegas Strip

CityCenter's spectacular Residential Sales Pavilion opened today, designed to showcase the development's offerings and take reservations for approximately 2,700 luxury residences. CityCenter, MGM MIRAGE's $7 billion dazzling vertical city in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, will redefine the possibilities of sophisticated urban living. World-class architects and renowned designers have joined to create this unrivaled urban residential experience -- a destination that has it all: high style, impeccable design, superior amenities and unmatched owner privileges.

Three of CityCenter's four residential developments have been released to the public for reservations: Vdara Condo Hotel, designed by RV Architecture LLC led by Rafael Vinoly; Veer Towers designed by Helmut Jahn; and The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, designed by KPF Architects. Residences at The Harmon, designed by Foster and Partners, will be released later in 2007. Each offering will be a superb architectural achievement, reflecting the brilliance and individuality of its designer. Dramatic exteriors will be matched by breathtaking interiors, where every appointment, texture and detail is the result of thoughtful consideration.

For detailed views of CityCenter's spectacular residences and design possibilities, prospective owners can visit the development's stunning Residential Sales Pavilion, which opened today (January 2) at 2 p.m. Located at 3780 Las Vegas Blvd. South, the Pavilion is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and boasts the most technologically advanced design capabilities available providing visitors an intimate understanding of CityCenter's approximately 2,700 luxury residences and a glimpse into the world's newest societal trend: urban resort living. CityCenter's Residential Sales Pavilion delivers an unparalleled residential buying experience and is expected to become a must-see attraction on The Strip. The Pavilion currently showcases full-scale models, unit locations, floor plans and the multitude of interior design options available for Vdara, Veer Towers and The Residences at Mandarin Oriental. The Harmon's model room will open later in 2007.

CityCenter will open in late 2009 between Bellagio and Monte Carlo resorts. The development combines private residences, boutique hotels, a resort casino and a retail and entertainment district into a single urban core.
