"MGM Mirage announced... that it will build a $4 billion "city" on the Las Vegas Strip. The company says the massive development is the size of New York's SoHo district, Times Square and Rockefeller Center combined.

...At the same time, casino impresario Steve Wynn is planning to build a huge resort development behind his latest casino project, Wynn Las Vegas.
