Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas, Nevada
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is a luxury resort casino and hotel that broke ground in October 2005 just south of the Bellagio on the west side of the Las Vegas Strip and consists of two highrise towers. The resort opened on December 15, 2010. The $3.9 billion project features 2,995 rooms; a 75,000 sq ft (7,000 m2) casino; 300,000 sq ft (28,000 m2) of retail and restaurant space; a 40,000 sq ft (3,700 m2) spa and fitness facility; a 1,800 seat theater; and 150,000 sq ft (14,000 m2) of meeting/convention space. The resort was originally supposed to have a mix of 2,200 residential condominium-hotel units and 800 hotel rooms but plans were changed due to the effects of the late-2000s global recession.
