September 10, 2007

Cleary Gottlieb is representing Istithmar PJSC in its joint venture with MGM Mirage and Kerzner International Holdings Limited for the development of a 40+ acre, multi-billion dollar integrated resort property on the Las Vegas Strip. The deal signed on September 10, and the parties expect to develop the resort over the next several years. The as-yet unnamed resort will use existing brands owned by either MGM or Kerzner, or a new brand will be introduced.

MGM Mirage is a leading hotel and gaming company. Kerzner International Holdings is a developer and operator of destination resorts, casinos and luxury hotels, including the Atlantis and One&Only brands. Istithmar is Dubai’s private investment vehicle.
