High-end Mixed Use On The Strip

Three billion dollar project in Vegas emphasizes living spaces and other nongambling features.

The developers of "Project CityCenter," which will go up on the site of the Boardwalk Hotel, say that it will be a pedestrian oriented, mixed-use complex.

"'We are talking about an environment where people don't simply visit resort after resort on the Las Vegas Strip but an environment where people want to live and work and interact with one another,' MGM Mirage President and Chief Financial Officer Jim Murren said."
