MGM Resorts International and New York-based Sydell Group partnered to reimagine and rebrand Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. The approximately $450-million transformation, which will touch every element of the property, will include two hotels: a Las Vegas version of Sydell's NoMad Hotel, and the launch of a new luxury hotel named Park MGM.
In addition to fully redesigned and renovated hotel guestrooms, each hotel will have food-and-beverage offerings, including the NoMad restaurant by chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara; and Eataly's Italian marketplace with cafes, to-go counters and restaurants.
Park MGM and The NoMad Las Vegas will become the final pieces of MGM Resorts' complete neighborhood redesign of the central Las Vegas Strip neighborhood, which began in 2009 with the introduction of CityCenter and the unveiling of The Park, an outdoor dining and entertainment district, and the T-Mobile Arena.
The properties of Sydell Group, a partnership between investor Ron Burkle and founder Andrew Zobler, include The NoMad in New York, The Line in Los Angeles, and Freehand in Miami and Chicago. Sydell will collaborate with MGM Resorts on the propertywide transformation of all public and guest spaces, including the F&B offerings, of both hotels.
Park MGM is a new concept by MGM and Sydell. The design of Park MGM, an approximately 2,700-room luxury resort, will build upon the property's history, incorporating its European design influences while retaining a connection to The Park next door. Park MGM's design will have a residential feel.
British designer Martin Brudnizki will work with Sydell Group and MGM to transform the resort's public areas. Clean lines will define the architecture of each space, combined with classically inspired European furnishings and an art program.
The NoMad Las Vegas will complement the Park MGM, offering 292 guestrooms and suites, a dedicated drop-off, lobby, and swimming pool. Sydell Group will team with chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara for the F&B offerings.
The NoMad Las Vegas design will be a collaboration between Sydell Group and French designer Jacques Garcia.
Construction at Park MGM and The NoMad Las Vegas is expected to commence in late 2016 and conclude in late 2018.
