MGM MIRAGE Provides Update on CityCenter Progress

Project Size Increases by 670,000 Square Feet
 Residential Sales Exceed $800 Million to Date
 

              

LAS VEGAS, April 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MGM MIRAGE (NYSE: MGM) today provided updated information on its CityCenter cost estimates and the progress of the residential sales efforts.

    CityCenter Program and Cost Estimates

Construction of all components of CityCenter is well underway. The components of CityCenter remain unchanged while the gross construction square footage has increased by 670,000 square feet. Management has updated CityCenter's gross construction costs to a total of approximately $7.4 billion, excluding land costs and pre-opening expenses. Management also has updated its estimate of expected gross proceeds from the sale of residential units, from $2.5 billion to $2.7 billion, resulting in a new estimated net cost of CityCenter of $4.7 billion versus the previous estimate of $4.3 billion. In each case, these net costs exclude approximately $200 million in pre-opening expenses.

"In a project of the magnitude and complexity of CityCenter, variances are to be expected," said Terry Lanni, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MGM MIRAGE. "Our revised estimate of costs and revenues represents the increase to the overall development size as well as the tremendous public response to the residential offerings. Unit sales have been robust, and CityCenter continues to track to an on-schedule opening in November 2009."

    Residential Sales Progress

Sales of residential units commenced in January 2007 and have been exceptionally strong. Through April 19, 2007, contracts for the sale of residential units have been executed representing over $800 million in sales proceeds at average sales per square foot above original projections. These contracts are accompanied by non-refundable deposits equal to 10% of the purchase price at signing, with a second 10% deposit due in six months from contract signing.

The Company is currently converting reservations to sales contracts for Vdara, the 1,543-unit condominium-hotel tower. During its initial release, the Company has received over 700 reservations and anticipates converting approximately 60% of such units to sales contracts. To date, over 300 of these reservations have been converted to sales contracts. The Company has also begun taking reservations for the two 335-unit Veer towers, and has received over 630 reservation deposits. The Company has only recently begun converting reservations to contract. The residential program at the Mandarin Oriental has been tremendously successful with approximately 90% of the 227 units sold out at higher average price per square foot than originally anticipated. The Company expects to release approximately 200 residences at The Harmon later this year.

CityCenter is MGM MIRAGE's dazzling vertical city in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip between Bellagio and Monte Carlo resorts. The development combines into a single urban core approximately 2,700 private residences, two 400-room non-gaming boutique hotels (one of which will be managed by luxury hotelier Mandarin Oriental), a dramatic 60-story, 4,000-room resort casino, and a 470,000-square-foot retail and entertainment district. CityCenter is a design collaboration between MGM MIRAGE and eight of the world's foremost architects including Foster and Partners, Gensler, Helmut Jahn, KPF Architects, Pelli Clarke Pelli, Rockwell Group, RV Architecture LLC led by Rafael Vinoly and Studio Daniel Libeskind.
