MGMMirage President of Development Talks MGM Grand Atlantic City
The Philadelphia Inquirer has published a piece about MGM Grand Atlantic City including some tidbits of what we can expect from the property, courtesy of MGMMirage President of Development Ken Rosevear.
According to Rosevear, who has personally been responsible for the development of 29 casinos world wide, including New York-New York and MGM Grand Macau, MGM Grand Atlantic City will "be a postcard [...] an iconic building that will be recognized as the new skyline of Atlantic City."
Like many Las Vegas resorts, MGM Grand Atlantic City will be Y-shaped, but with a twist. Instead of the central spine being a block of elevator shafts, there will be no spine at all, save for a two story spa that will connect all three towers at the 45th floor.
Rosevear makes comparisons to MGM Grand Macau when discussing the hues of the three towers, a similarity we noted in an early article about the property. However the difference between the three-tier layer cake that is MGM Grand Macau, MGM Grand Atlantic City will be three towers, each having a different hue of gold that features a slight gradient in the glass skin from the bottom to the top (very cool). The total price tag of MGM Grand Atlantic City - soup to nuts - will be about $5B - by far the most expensive resort built in Atlantic City or Las Vegas with City Center Las Vegas being the the only exception.
