MGM Unveiling New Performance, Pedestrian Spaces

This week, MGM Resorts International begins unveiling its $575 million, 22-acre entertainment district on the southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard.

The T-Mobile Arena debuting Wednesday has lined up a series of high-profile music and sports events on its calendar and hopes it can also be the home of a professional hockey team should the National Hockey League approve expansion.

A 5,300-seat theater designed for headliners to play in residence at the Monte Carlo is scheduled to open by the end of the year.
