(Las Vegas, NV) — MGM Resorts International is releasing more details on a planned outdoor dining, retail and entertainment area on the Las Vegas Strip.
“The Park” will also feature landscaped areas and MGM’s planned 20,ooo seat sports arena and event center between New York, New York and the Monte Carlo resorts.
Rue de Monte Carlo, the adjacent street providing access from Las Vegas Boulevard, will be realigned as a gently curving, tree-lined, cobblestone parkway.
Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International, said, “Beautiful public places are highlights of many of the world’s finest cities, and Las Vegas shouldn’t be the exception. The Park will be the first of its kind on the Las Vegas Strip and is an embodiment of MGM Resorts’ commitment to engaging guests through arts and innovation. To create this picturesque outdoor destination, we are literally taking down the walls and opening the doors at our resorts to develop a unique dining and entertainment district that complements its lush new surroundings.”
Construction work is already underway at New York, New York and Monte Carlo.
The Park is projected to open in 2016.
