Sustainability Statistics

CityCenter Las Vegas

In January 2005, MGM Mirage Design Group and Gensler teamed to lead the massive 67-acre, 18M-SF CityCenter project’s design effort. The Office of James Burnett (OJB) was asked to join the design leadership team and CityCenter Horticulture, with the responsibility of providing design and delivery expertise to the $300 million landscape architecture scope of the LEED Gold project.

The $9 billion high-end residential, hospitality, entertainment, shopping, and recreational development is essentially an urban district with a unique mix of uses. The project lies between the Monte Carlo and Bellagio resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, and six of the nine buildings have attained LEED Gold status. Approximately 75 percent of the project’s landscape architecture rests on structure, while the remaining landscape lines the project’s perimeter.

OJB’s contributions to the project included the design and documentation of portions of the landscape elements along CityCenter Place, the Las Vegas Strip, and the Harmon Hotel. OJB also led project wide coordination of collaboration efforts, design presentations, sustainability targets, and construction administration related to the landscape architecture scope. Peer reviews of all landscape architecture documentation efforts were provided by OJB, as well assistance to CityCenter Horticulture in standardizing the project’s common hardscape and planting details, specimen tree and plant procurement, irrigation system, soil formulation and specification, dog parks, and furnishings selections.
