CityCenter won't open all at once

19 May 2008

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- For some time, the folks at MGM Mirage have touted the fact that CityCenter – all 18 million square feet of it – will open at once by the end of 2009.

While there may be one heck of a grand opening for the $9.2 billion city-within-a-city on the Strip, actual opening dates for the various buildings will differ.

This week, CityCenter Chief Executive Bobby Baldwin revealed more specifics in an interview with the Sun. He said Vdara, the condominium hotel building the company topped off this week, would open around August 2009 and Aria, the main hotel-casino building, would open December 16, 2009.

The company previously had been saying the project would open by November 2009.
