Creating CityCenter

World-Class Architecture and the New Las Vegas

William R. Smith (Author), Scott J. Tilden (Author)

With Lynne Lavelle

Overview | Contents

How the Strip got urban streets and parks, hotels, luxury retail stores, condominiums, and convention centers in one mega-development.

MGM Resorts International’s CityCenter is the largest privately financed building project in the United States to date; its development brought together star architects and major interior design firms and landscape architects. The design and concurrent construction of seven separate buildings and accompanying infrastructure are documented here from start to finish in stunning photographs.
