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