Las Vegas Strip Condos Near the Aria Hotel
by Travis Scholl, Top Las Vegas Strip Condo Real Estate Agent & Native Las Vegan
Located inside the massive project that is MGM City Center sits The Aria Resort and Casino. Named, “The ARIA”, due to its placement as the central feature of CityCenter ( as arias are focal points in operas ) it is comprised of two curvilinear glass towers measuring 61 stories tall. I wanted to focus on this resort as my last post was spotlighting The Martin exclusively. When I spend time at The Martin I always end up at The Aria whether it is for dining or entertainment.
Among the most notable aspects of Aria is its incorporation of technology in the exterior and interior design of the hotel, specifically for the reduction of energy consumption. Unless you were keyed in to this information you wouldn’t be aware, but The Aria has a distinct feel to it that is unlike other resorts as the attention to detail is apparent in all aspects of this property inside and out.
Some of the most desired Dining and shopping is just outside the Aria in the Crystals shopping district and with it’s 16 restaurants, 10 bars and nightclubs as well as an expansive casino the Aria Hotel / Casino has something for everyone. Residential High Rise living near the Aria is abundant. Within walking distance you have Veer Towers, The Mandarin Oriental and Vdara hotel / condos. Hotel / Condo type of ownership is where the unit owner buys a fully furnished / turnkey unit just like a Hotel room in a fine resort that you would book for a vacation, but you then have the option to enter the unit into a rental program with the developer and you receive a portion of the monthly revenue that the unit creates.
This can be a nice arrangement for Clients looking to purchase a unit that they may only use 4 or 5 times a year and in the meantime can keep it in the rental program and receive revenue to help offset the monthly carrying costs of HOA dues. Other similar type of Hotel / Condo buildings are : Palms Place, The Signature at MGM Grand, Trump Tower, The Platinum and select units at The Cosmopolitan where owners are in possession of the units (this is rare.)
What Other High Rise Condos are Near Veer Towers and The Aria?
Across the freeway to the west of The Aria sits Panorama Towers 1 & 2 and The Martin, these three are comparable in style and finishes as they had the same developer, Sasson-Hallier. Running through the middle of MGM City Center and heading east towards the university is Harmon Ave. This street has become a “second strip” of sorts as the Las Vegas strip cannot expand further than it currently exists as it is anchored by McCarran Airport to the South and the Stratosphere to the North. This new “Hip Strip” is a walkable environment that is surrounded by Condominiums, Resorts, Casinos and Nightclubs. Harmon Ave is a 2.5 mile stretch of road that has been extended over the I-15 freeway to allow traffic to flow through the various resorts and high rise towers and alleviate some of the pressure off of Las Vegas Blvd. The video below will give you an idea of the proximity of The Martin to The Aria Hotel via the Harmon Overpass.
The Signature MGM is one of the hotel / condo buildings where we have sold quite a number of condos over the years.
The interior of the units seem to have a broad appeal to many different types of owners across the board and it’s location with direct access to the MGM is priceless. We also now have the Top Golf facility that is within walking distance of The Signature that is unique in what it offers individuals looking to intertwine the love of golf with dining and cocktails. All of this is stemming out from the Aria resort which is the jewel of the Strip and the heart of MGM City Center ( a term that was retired in 2005 with the focus now being on The Aria itself as the centerpiece of the entire mixed-use project.)
