CityCenter Holdings, a venture between MGM Resorts International and Infinity World Development Corp, today announced that it has closed on the sale of the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas and adjacent retail parcels for USD 214 million in cash. CityCenter expects to use the proceeds from the sale to pay a dividend to its shareholders. The deal was first announced in last May.
CityCenter, which is 50-50 percent owned by a wholly owned subsidiary of MGM Resorts International and Infinity World Development Corp (a wholly owned subsidiary of Dubai World), is a mixed-use development on the Las Vegas Strip located between the Bellagio and Park MGM resorts that includes ARIA Resort & Casino, a 4,004-room casino resort; Vdara Hotel and Spa, a 1,495-room luxury condominium-style hotel; and the Veer Towers, which contain 669 luxury condominium residences.
The hotel is located at the entryway of CityCenter and in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip currently featuring 392 guestrooms, including 57 suites, 12,000 square feet of meeting space, five food and beverage outlets, and a two-level 27,000 square-foot spa.
“CityCenter has continued to deliver strong operating results and has cemented itself as a premier luxury destination in Las Vegas,” said Jim Murren, chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International. “As a result of its financial strength and the closing of this transaction, CityCenter expects to return approximately USD 200 million to its owners, MGM Resorts and Infinity World during the third quarter.”
