Sustainable Sin City: Vegas Takes a Step Towards Green
CityCenter is a planned 18 million square foot “environmentally sustainable urban community” set to open in Las Vegas at the end of 2009. The complex will include three hotels, two casinos, a retail and entertainment district and a $40 million public fine art program.
The team creating CityCenter has tapped a crew of all star green architects and hundreds of sustainability consultants to make sure any and every possible green option is used. The project is aiming for LEED certification, and will be larger than all current LEED certified buildings combined.
