MGM Mirage, the world's second-largest casino company, plans to develop a new community about 25 miles south of Las Vegas that will include a casino, hotel, stores and housing. The development in Jean, Nev., is a joint venture with Jeanco Realty Development and will be built on 166 acres of mostly undeveloped land owned by MGM, the Las Vegas-based company said Monday. MGM will close the 302-room Nevada Landing Casino, one of two hotel-casinos it owns in Jean, by April 18 as part of the plan.

MGM Mirage will slash prices of its high-end CityCenter condos by 30%, the company said Monday, a move intended to mollify buyers who were unsure they could close on units purchased during the Las Vegas real estate boom. The price cuts underscore the reversal of fortunes on the Las Vegas Strip. Just a few years ago, condominiums were being touted as the next stage in its seemingly unstoppable growth. Although the reductions mark a significant reversal by the gaming giant, which took deposits on about half of its 2,400 residential units, it was unclear whether the cuts were deep enough to satisfy some buyers.
