Veer Towers are twin 37-story, 480-foot (150 m), residential towers located within CityCenter on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. Each tower houses 337 luxury condominium units ranging from 537 to 2,256 square feet (49.9 to 209.6 m2). The two towers were designed by Murphy/Jahn Architects of Chicago and lean in opposite directions (five degrees from center).

Every residence has a view of the Las Vegas skyline. Lobbies and public spaces were developed by Francisco Gonzalez Pulido and showcase works by natural light. Dianna Wong Architecture & Interior Design designed the residences.

The rooftop Sky Decks include infinity edge swimming pools, hot tubs, sun decks and summer kitchens. Resident fitness and locker rooms, billiards rooms and lounges are on the 37th floor. A private residential driveway leads to separate vehicle entrances, secured elevators and valet service, all monitored by 24-hour security.[2]

The towers are the only all-residential buildings at CityCenter, a community of fine dining, luxury shopping, entertainment and gaming in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. The Shops at Crystals has more than 500,000 square feet of high-end retailers such as Gucci, Chanel, Hermes and Prada.

The adjacent ARIA Resort & Casino hosts Zarkana by Cirque Du Soleil, while the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, Vdara Hotel & Spa and Gallery Row Shops are all within close walking distance. The ARIA Express monorail connects CityCenter to Bellagio to the north and Monte Carlo to the south. Veer Tower residents are part of the M life Curated Living program through MGM Resorts International.

History[edit]

In early stages of the project, the towers were known as the Sobella Residential Towers.

The towers were designed by Helmut Jahn's office based in Chicago. Lobbies and public spaces were been developed by Francisco Gonzalez Pulido and showcase works by natural light. Dianna Wong Architecture & Interior Design designed the residences.

The condominium buildings received a LEED Gold certification on November 20, 2009,[3] and opened on July 14, 2010

In December 2012, CityCenter sold 427 Veer condos in bulk for $119 million to Ladder Capital Finance. Pordes Residential is representing the seller offering Studio, 1, 2 & 3 BR Residences from $250,000 to over $1.8 million.[2]

Enhancements are being made to the private residential lobbies, pools on both roofs, and other common areas.

Fine Art Collection[edit]

As part of CityCenter, Veer Towers has access to a fine art collection a multitude of styles and media ranging from sculptures and paintings to large-scale installations. Some are existing pieces chosen for their artistic value and cultural significance; others are site-specific installations for which the artist was invited to command his or her vision over the space.

The works by notable artists such as Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Isa Genzken, Jenny Holzer, François-Xavier Lalanne, Maya Lin, Richard Long, Henry Moore, Nancy Rubins, and Frank Stella.[4] Long is one of Britain’s best-known sculptors and conceptual artists. He is known for the natural world style he brings to his earthworks. Long was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1984, 1987 and 1988, he won the award for White Water Line in 1989.

For the mud drawings on the lobby walls of both Veer Towers, Long diluted mud that he brought to Las Vegas from the River Avon and applied it to the walls with his hands. Two large-scale works titled “Circle of Chance” and “Earth” cover the west and east walls.
