What Happens in Vegas...May Burn You


CityCenter Land, LLC, a subsidiary of MGM-Mirage, owns nine trademark registrations for VDARA, the name of one of the newest resorts in Las Vegas. Vdara is an all-suite building, has a spa, a restaurant, no casino gaming, and is non-smoking.

It even has a “death ray.”

Local and national news outlets and architecture blogs have been reporting that the concave curvature of one side of Vdara’s façade “acts like a parabolic reflector,” collecting and dispersing heat in various areas over the pool. The concentrated beams of light are so hot that they can melt plastic bags.
