If you've been following the Vegas news over the past day or so, you will have noticed some new details on MGM MIRAGE's 'Project CityCenter' development, to be located between Monte Carlo and Bellagio.
We got the skinny from MGM MIRAGE and will summarize what we know after the jump.

First off, they revealed the addition of several new architects to the project. The team now consists of:
- Cesar Pelli is responsible for the main hotel tower, which has been expanded in scope from the original announcement into a higher end property. It will contain about 4,000 rooms and is located towards the rear of the property.
- Kohn Pedersen Fox will design the non-gaming hotels that will sit closer to the Strip. These will be operated by Mandarin Oriental and the Light Group and the former will feature Adam Tihany done interiors. He's been doing a lot of work for MGM MIRAGE, mostly restaurant remodels in their Strip hotels.
- On the North side, near Bellagio, will sit the condo-hotel that is assigned to Rafael Vinoly. At 50 stories, it is to be encased in black glass.
- Above the retail component, Murphy/Jahn Architects will design loft like residences in two glass towers.
- Finally, the retail area will be designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind.
Overall, the team is full of star architects and based on the models you'll see below, the design is striking. Of course, with so many different folks working within the same site plan, there may be some contention. We'll see.
