09 January 2017

The Park and Las Vegas Boulevard has been published in Commercial Construction & Renovation:

“Can urban design help turn a notorious party street into a pedestrian oasis? On the iconic Las Vegas Strip, there’s fresh new evidence in a streetscape and park project involving Cooper Robertson, a leader in urban design and master planning.”

“‘The Las Vegas Strip is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, and as the city continues to evolve, organizations like MGM Resorts are recognizing the importance of including true urban functions and experiences,’ says Cooper Robertson partner Donald Clinton, AIA, MRAIC, LEED AP. ‘The Park concept reflects an important investment in master planning and public space, and establishes an unprecedented pedestrian environment in a city not widely credited for its public realm.’”

“According to Jim Murren, chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International, ‘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. 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.’”
