A joint venture between MGM MIRAGE (NYSE:MGM) and Dubai World, the more than $8 billion development will feature a soaring 61-story, 4,000-room hotel/casino; two 400-room, non-gaming boutique hotels approximately 2,650 luxury residences; and The Crystals, a 500,000-square-foot retail and entertainment district.
