The firm will be responsible for managing the day-to-day details and logistics involved in the development of a project as ambitious as MGM National Harbor. Serving in this role, the McKissack & McKissack team will provide construction management support, manage project schedule development, manage cost model and budget, and provide diversity management support during planning and construction of the $925 million resort.
“McKissack & McKissack represents the best of the best of their industry and we are proud to add them to our team,” said Lorenzo Creighton, MGM National Harbor’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Their experience managing some of the metropolitan area’s most impressive undertakings made them the clear choice to oversee our multidimensional National Harbor construction and development.”
McKissack & McKissack will start its work with MGM National Harbor immediately and will remain on through the duration of the project. MGM National Harbor is a destination gaming resort project located in National Harbor, the waterfront development on the shores of the Potomac River in Prince George’s County, just south of Washington, D.C. near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.
In December 2013, MGM National Harbor was awarded a license to operate the sixth casino in the State of Maryland. The $925 million MGM National Harbor resort will include a 300-room luxury hotel, a casino featuring 3,600 slots and 140 table games, a 1,200-seat theater, high-end branded retail, 35,000 square feet of meeting space, and restaurants from renowned local and national chefs.
