Rounding out our Escapes month here at Apartment Therapy we thought we'd look to the future--Las Vegas' future that is. It seems MGM Mirage, one of Vegas' biggest hotel conglomerates is going eco-friendly in an attempt to bring a little bit of green to sin city (no pun intended). Opening in the fall of 2009, the $8 Billion Harmon Hotel, Spa and Residences plans on featuring sustainable design--find out more after the jump.
Will The new Harmon Hotel forgo luxury living in lieu of a more eco-friendly lifestyle? We think they'll probably do a good job at combining both worlds. Harmon's vision of sustainable design is first represented by "CityCenter" the "76-acre city within a city". Little carbon footprint here when you aren't having to travel outside of Harmon's walls. The MGM Mirage chain also boasts water conservation by incorporating low-flow bathroom fixtures and an efficient irrigation system. More conservation efforts will be seen with the power consumed at CityCenter with most of the power being generated on-site. For more views and information, check out The Harmon here.
