LAS VEGAS-The Mandarin Oriental is the latest of six towers to top out at the $11.2-billion, 19 million-sf Citycenter development on the Las Vegas Strip. Rising on 67 acres between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo resorts, the massive endeavor by MGM Mirage and Dubai World has been under construction since 2006 and is scheduled to open all at once in approximately 14 months.

Each of the towers was designed by a different architect. The 47-story Mandarin Oriental, designed by Kohn Pederson Fox, is a 400-room hotel topped by approximately 227 luxury condominiums. Approximately 93% of the condominiums have been sold, generating $656 million in sales, according to Citycenter.

Last month, steel workers laid the final piece of steel for the Aria Resort & Casino, the anchor property with 4,000 rooms in two 61-story towers designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli. In June, workers placed the last piece of structural steel for the Vdara, a 57-story, 1,500-unit condo hotel designed by Rafael Vinoly.
