Vdara’s Scent Green Fig Beautiful green freshness accomplished with a very complex blend of year-round elements. Top notes of Green Leaves, Fig, Cassis, Bergamot, Pear, Basil, Cardamom, Lime, Pine, and Mandarin; with very subtle middle notes of Jasmine, Cyclamen, Lily of the Valley, Clove, and Violet; finished for a smooth delivery with even more subtle Cedarwood, Coconut, Oakmoss, and Sandalwood.
Vdara was the first of six projects to be completed as part of the $8.5 billion CityCenter complex. Vdara's opening on December 1, 2009 was followed by The Crystals, a retail shopping center; Mandarin Oriental and Aria Resort & Casino in the same month. Prior to its opening, Vdara was designated as a LEED Gold award building and received a five-key rating from the Green Key Eco-Rating Program. Designed by Rafael Viñoly of RV Architecture, LLC, Vdara's 57-story crescent-shaped structure is formed by three parallel, offset arcs of varying heights. Because of its staggered arc design, Vdara contains six corner suites per floor, compared to four in a conventional building. The curvature of the building was designed as complementary to the arcs of Aria Resort & Casino, which is located across a shared circular driveway.
