Crystals is an ever moving space

Crystals employs the most environmentally conscious practices and materials. In November 2009 it was announced that Crystals achieved LEED® Gold Core & Shell certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), making it the world’s largest retail district to receive this level of recognition. The project was completed in late 2009 and includes collaborations between MGM MIRAGE and eight of the world’s foremost architects.

Housed within crystalline, metal-clad shapes, high end retail shops will line Las Vegas Blvd and the Avenue. A dramatic entryway into the retail area from the Strip draws pedestrians into the public arcade, covered by an expressive, spiraling roof structure.

In addition to providing access to retail shops, the public spaces  allow for a variety of urban experiences: a water feature at the entry, cafes and a grand staircase leading to Casino Square at the end of the arcade, animating the whole space. In addition to the main entry off Las Vegas Blvd, there are two entries off the Avenue as well as access to the facility on the second level through pedestrian bridges over Harmon Avenue to the Lifestyle Hotel and over the Avenue from The Mandarin Oriental Hotel. In addition to the casino, hotels and residential buildings, the public retail complex is intended to add a vibrant program to the mixed-use development on Block C.
