Good Morning, Vietnam!
Where else but in gaming can a symbol of capitalism gain the blessing of a communist government?
That's exactly what will occur next year when MGM Resorts International and Asian Coast Development (Canada) Ltd. (ACDL) unveil the spectacular MGM Grand Ho Tram, Vietnam's first large-scale integrated resort. A major role will be played by Steelman Partners- as the architect and in the areas of interior and lighting design, as well as a principal- for this historic endeavor. In 2008, the Vietnamese government awarded Asian Coast Development the first license to build a gaming resort. At least five more have followed, but this is billed as the signature architectural piece to announce Vietnam's leap into gaming.
