The new City Center on the Las Vegas “Strip” opened in December 2009. This multi-billion dollar complex of hotels, condominiums, a shopping mall and of course a casino, is a complete departure from the usual Las Vegas casino fare in style and form.
This type of urban living space, while not a brand-new concept, may have worked well in cities like Los Angeles or Atlanta. However, I’m not so sure if this will work for this surreal planet called Vegas. Is this a new direction the future of Las Vegas might take? Only time will tell.
We still don’t quite know what to make of it. I love some things but also hate other parts. I don’t think George cares for any of it at all. A matter of opinion and taste, I suppose. Here are impressions from the City Center in Las Vegas from last Friday.
