CityCenter Las Vegas – This 18-million-square-foot, $9 billion casino complex is billed as the most expensive private construction project in U.S. history. CityCenter, a city within a city on the Las Vegas Strip, includes a sprawling casino, 4 hotels, 2,400 homes and 42 restaurants and bars. Completed in 2009, the lavish project was $1.2 billion over-budget and continues to be a major drag for parent company MGM Resorts, which posted a loss of $1.44 billion in 2010 and as most expensive casinos in the world.

    Wow! amazing stats and running at a loss, LQQKS very impressive πŸ™‚

    Have a losslesstastic WWS ➑

      January 23, 2019 11:47 am at 11:47 am

      I’d love to see it, but Vegas isn’t my favorite place. Too glitzy. πŸ™‚

  2. January 23, 2019 12:40 am at 12:40 am

    Hokey smokes, that is not the kind of deficit you want recorded on the books. That’s a huge loss.

    My 2nd oldest just came back from a California and Las Vegas/Grand Canyon adventure. Gorgeous pictures.

    January 23, 2019 1:03 am at 1:03 am

    We were there in 2009 and it hadn’t been opened then. That is a mind boggling loss!

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:49 am at 11:49 am

      It is indeed. I didn’t even know about it until I saw it be accident. Decided to post it today. πŸ™‚

  4. January 23, 2019 1:53 am at 1:53 am

    It’s pretty impressive looking but the financial loss to MGM proves it was a waste of money. Maybe they should remember the phrase “less is more” πŸ™‚

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:50 am at 11:50 am

      Less is always more. It took me some time to figure that out too. πŸ™‚

  5. January 23, 2019 2:14 am at 2:14 am

    Beautiful! I have yet to visit this place.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:51 am at 11:51 am

      I would love to see it, but that would mean I’d have to go to Las Vegas. Didn’t care for Vegas at all. πŸ™‚

  6. January 23, 2019 2:54 am at 2:54 am

    That looks like a town of its own. Very impurressive, Sandee πŸ˜€ We have the best news ever for you: my brother who lives with my mother, Bobo is back. Thank you for your support and purrayers. They truly brought him back home <3 Pawkisses from πŸ’—toπŸ’—πŸΎπŸ˜½πŸ’ž

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:51 am at 11:51 am

      You had the very best post of all the posts today. I’m so happy Bobo is back home. Happy dance happening here. πŸ™‚

  7. January 23, 2019 2:55 am at 2:55 am

    That is one large casino.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:52 am at 11:52 am

      It’s a city within the city. It’s huge. πŸ™‚

  8. January 23, 2019 3:08 am at 3:08 am

    Looks impressive. Too bad though that it’s running at a loss.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:52 am at 11:52 am

      I think they tried to incorporate way too much and are bleeding out. πŸ™‚

  9. January 23, 2019 3:22 am at 3:22 am

    That sure is fancy though!

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:53 am at 11:53 am

      I’m betting it’s very pricey to be here too. πŸ™‚

  10. January 23, 2019 3:39 am at 3:39 am

    That is one gigntic place. I cannot imagine having to visit there since it would cost so much. Sandee, you and Zane have one fantastic day.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:55 am at 11:55 am

      We don’t care for Vegas at all. Was there once for one night and off we went. You have a fantastic day too, Marg. πŸ™‚

  11. January 23, 2019 3:54 am at 3:54 am

    Crazy how much money they lost!

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:55 am at 11:55 am

      They miscalculated somewhere. I’m guessing it was the homes? πŸ™‚

  12. January 23, 2019 4:03 am at 4:03 am

    Vegas is like another world, but the building sure looks neat.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 11:58 am at 11:58 am

      It’s an adult play land. Some folks love it and others don’t. πŸ™‚

      I would love to explore it too. It’s a long way from here though. You have a great day too, Ellen. πŸ™‚

  14. January 23, 2019 5:09 am at 5:09 am

    That is an amazing building and I know several people who love vacationing in Vegas…. I’m not one of them. Last time we vacationed in the area, we went hiking in the desert. We figure if we go, again, we’ll rent a houseboat on Lake Mead.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm

      I’d be hiking and on the lake too. Vegas doesn’t interest me or hubby. πŸ™‚

  15. January 23, 2019 5:36 am at 5:36 am

    With legalized gambling and casino’s popping up in nearly every state there has been a slow drain on the Vegas tourist economy. Cities Center seems to say, “Too much of a good thing, is not a good thing.” Have a blessed Wednesday.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm

      I don’t care for the glitzy look of Vegas. It’s too, too. You have a blessed Wednesday too, my friend. πŸ™‚

  16. January 23, 2019 5:46 am at 5:46 am

    Sandee,

    9 billion with a B? Wouldn’t you just love to have 1% of that figure? I think I could live comfortable on it, don’t you? lol I just imagine such a place as this and I’m certain it has paid for itself given the kind of traffic these sorts of resorts receive. Have a wonderful not-so-WW, my friend!

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 12:03 pm at 12:03 pm

      Yes, we would have oodles of money if we had that 1%. Have a wonderful WW too, Cathy. πŸ™‚

  17. January 23, 2019 6:23 am at 6:23 am

    Wow! Guess they thought they could compete with Dubai maybe? Such a waste.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 12:04 pm at 12:04 pm

      Well it’s not working out very well, Linda. Some of those homes are in the millions. πŸ™‚

  18. January 23, 2019 6:28 am at 6:28 am

    So that’s how they spent my money.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 7:26 am at 7:26 am

      That’s how they spend our money, Kismet. πŸ™‚

    Lovely photo ~ can’t help but think this country has its priorities upside down ~ Decadent ~
    Son and I in the 90’s passed by there on a ‘road trip’ ~ neither one of us had a desire to see it ~ Plus my husband (his step Dad) had just died (hence the road trip for me) as my son was officer in Navy and next post was on East Coast ~ so enjoyed seeing our beautiful country ~

    Happy Day to you,

  20. January 23, 2019 6:55 am at 6:55 am

    That’s an insane amount of money to spend and to lose! Such a waste. Bigger isn’t always better, as they say. Happy #WW to you. Thanks for hosting this linkup.

      I’ve tried to leave a comment on your Instagram, but I’m not on Instagram. I also got your private comment and have not idea what you said. Sorry, I’m not very good with social media. πŸ™‚

      • January 23, 2019 12:45 pm at 12:45 pm

        I don’t think you can comment on Instagram unless you have an account there. As for my message that was about Twitter. I wanted to follow you there, but apparently, your account is private and you have to approve it. Nobody can see what you’re sharing there, like your posts or other people’s posts, unless you set it to public. And when someone shares your posts from here it shows @httpstwittercommycomedyplus which doesn’t work well. It should be @mycomedyplus. Sorry to confuse you. Just trying to be helpful. πŸ™‚

      Very expensive and running at a loss. Not good, but beautiful. πŸ™‚

  22. January 23, 2019 7:23 am at 7:23 am

    Wow! That is a huge structure. Seems someone had visions of grandeur when they built something that big.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 12:14 pm at 12:14 pm

      They did and it’s just not working out as they planned. πŸ™‚

      • January 23, 2019 2:12 pm at 2:12 pm

        So unfortunate because it is a stunning complex!

  23. January 23, 2019 7:40 am at 7:40 am

    Perhaps all the excess of Vegas is finally catching up with Sin City. MGM should have just stayed with its flagship property and the 3 towers behind it. It’s already big enough!

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm

      I agree. Sometimes they thing bigger and more elegant is better. Seems not to be the case. πŸ™‚

  24. January 23, 2019 7:42 am at 7:42 am

    If I didn’t care where I was at, I could get significantly lost in a place like that, and not care that I was.

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm

      Then you need to visit this place. πŸ™‚

  27. January 23, 2019 8:55 am at 8:55 am

    Seems like they went a little overboard. I thought this was going to be from Dubai. This would fit right in with that city skyline, I think. Hugs to you, my dear!

      January 23, 2019 12:20 pm at 12:20 pm

      A penthouse suite costs 8 million and a small suite (900 square feet) costs a half a million. I think that’s their problem. πŸ™‚

    I just came over to join the blog hop…. and I did join, and then noticed that I was already in it. Thank you for linking me and for hosting the blog hop.

    That casino is a monstrosity in my humble opinion. Vegas isn’t my idea of a fun place to visit…

    • Sandee
      January 23, 2019 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm

      It’s very expensive too, Jan. A very small place was half a million dollars. πŸ™‚

    The Vegas of old is no longer now they are all about bigger and better and this is a huge one!!
    We went back in the 70’s and enjoyed it. Saw some great shows. I must say Vegas lost it’s appeal. My daughter and son in law were at the Country Music Concert in Vegas during the massacre. It was their 2nd time going. In 2017 they purchased VIP tickets that put them in covered sitting by the stage. They heard the the bullets flying just above them. General Admission is where they sat in 2016 and that was where most of the victims were in 2017. Thankfully they were not injured physically but it took some time to get their minds beyond the shooting.

  34. January 23, 2019 11:17 am at 11:17 am

    Very pretty, but I wouldn’t want to live there. Maybe if we were rich big spenders and liked the nightlife, it would be fun. πŸ™‚

    I’ve been by there but haven’t been to it because there were so many people. I don’t like being around all those people on the strip. Grandma from Vegas lives in Sun City Summerlin which is out near Red Rocks, a long way west of the strip, but when I visit her I do like to go to the Bellagio. I love the Italian style and the Conservatory, the Fountains and the Chihuly glass flowers.

    Hope you’re both doing well! Is it April 15th yet? Ugh.

    • Sandee
      January 24, 2019 7:12 am at 7:12 am

      We didn’t care for Vegas. We spent one night and then headed to the Grand Canyon. We did like that.

      No it’s not April 15th yet, but you’ll survive. You always do. πŸ™‚

  42. January 23, 2019 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm

    Even though my mom & step-dad lived in Vegas for about five or six (6) years and my daughter & I went there a lot & hubby & I went there one time. He was never there before & I got to tell you this one alright. We were at one of the Casino’s & playing slots here & there & it was really getting late. Neither one of us really won anything. It was one of those put some in get some back kinda night. Then I was just walking around a bit & Dave was still playing & then all of a sudden lights & bells, bells & lights went off in Dave’s machine & his face was so stunned & I went there with a big smile, but he was all nervous & whispered to me, “What did I do break it?” bwahahahaha He never won before & he had no idea what was happening. I explained he won about $250 in the slots & that frown turned upside down HUGE SMILE! BWAHAHAHA Anyway, your Casino we never went there. We just stuck around town and mostly went to a Casino near my Mom’s house. A place called the Santa Fe & there was another she liked, but the name escapes me right now. She lived on one of those Del Web properties & you had to be over 55 to live there. It was beautiful, but a tad expensive. She moved back home as she got older thank God & we got to spend time with her whenever we wanted until she passed away in April of 1996. Bummer! Anyway I could go on & on, but it’s getting late & it’s time for bed. Shot tomorrow… woo hoo!!! Have a great day & sweet dreams… love ya… meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee hehehehe
