Today, Las Vegas celebrates the opening of a groundbreaking development five years in the making. The spectacular ARIA Resort & Casino will open its doors, marking the official grand opening of CityCenter.
In addition to ARIA, the shimmering $8.5 billion city-within-a-city includes Vdara Hotel & Spa (opened Dec. 1), Crystals retail and entertainment district (opened Dec. 3), Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas (opened Dec. 4), and 2,400 residences (occupancies begin mid-January 2010). The Harmon, a 400-room luxury hotel, is slated to open late 2010.
Moments before opening ARIA’s doors to the public at 11pm, CityCenter will host a dazzling moment of visual stimulation with a fireworks display above ARIA Resort & Casino. With the 67-acre development serving as the perfect portrait, the explosion of colors will shower a magnificent canopy over CityCenter. The public opening will follow the fireworks display.
