Tiffany & Co announced plans for a late-2009 opening of an approximately 10,000-square-foot store in The Crystals at CityCenter, a dazzling vertical city under development in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
The multi-billion-dollar development, a joint venture between MGM MIRAGE and Dubai World, is the largest single multi-use project under construction in the country.
The new, two-level Tiffany & Co. store will face Las Vegas Boulevard and will be located in The Crystals, CityCenter's 500,000-square-foot retail and entertainment district.
The Crystals forms the core of this urban metropolis and is designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind with a brilliant crystalline canopy.
Libeskind's 85-foot-high glass facade will incorporate the store's entrance of polished black marble framing Tiffany's iconic, deco-inspired stainless steel doors, and will reveal the store's spacious interior with its grand sculptural staircase and curved, 85-foot ceiling soaring over gleaming stainless steel showcases, luxurious furnishings, mottled Makore wood and Italian marbles.
CityCenter is a design collaboration between MGM MIRAGE and eight internationally acclaimed architectural firms, whose environmentally conscious plan is a model of innovation and energy efficiency.
When completed in 2009, CityCenter will become one of the world's largest sustainable urban communities, encompassing 18 million square feet over 67 acres, with a host of amenities including luxury condominiums and hotels, meeting and convention facilities, upscale boutiques, fashionable clubs and gourmet restaurants.
