ARIA Resort & Casino Opens in Las Vegas
December 17, 2009

The ARIA Resort & Casino opened its doors last night and welcomed its first guests. Located at the heart of CityCenter, ARIA is the centerpiece of this extraordinary urban resort destination. Its debut signifies the official grand opening of this "city-within-a-city."

Designed by architectural firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, ARIA's architectural expression reveals itself at every turn, from its two curvilinear steel and glass towers to the clean use of natural elements including foliage, wood and stone. The Las Vegas operations of Giroux Glass were responsible for installing exterior structural glass walls and canopies as well as custom, high-end interior work.

At 18 million square feet, CityCenter has received six LEED® Gold certifications for its buildings.

At an early morning press conference yesterday, company executives and national dignitaries were on hand to pay tribute to CityCenter'sachievements in the arena of sustainable design, construction and operations.
