Earth Day is all about going "green" -- and for buildings, that means ecofriendly and sustainable construction.
In Vegas, though, our green comes in different shades -- mainly gold and silver.
City Center, MGM Resorts International's$8.5 billion mega-complex on the Strip, is the biggest project ever to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification. Here are some ways you can experience Earth Day at City Center.
Caesars Entertainment Corp. recent expansion of the Octavius Convention Center at Caesars Palace garnered silver LEED certification as well.
MGM Resorts also claims the Strip's only water recycling plant, at Treasure Island. It processes 100,000 gallons of gray water daily. The recycled water is then used in the Sirens Cove at TI, at the Volcano at The Mirage, and for landscaping.
