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 335 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.[3]

The towers are the only all-residential buildings at CityCenter.

History[edit]

The towers were designed by Helmut Jahn's office based in Chicago. 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 condominium buildings received a LEED Gold certification on November 20, 2009,[4] and opened on July 14, 2010

In December 2012, CityCenter sold 427 Veer condos in bulk for $119 million to Ladder Capital Finance.[3]

Fine art[edit]

The lobby walls of both Veer Towers feature mud drawings by Turner Prize-winning artist Richard Long, who diluted mud that he brought to Las Vegas from the River Avon and applied it to the walls with his hands. The two large-scale works titled “Circle of Chance” and “Earth” cover the lobby wall of the west and east tower.
