VEER TOWERS Veer Towers – CityCenter’s only completely residential development is a masterful translation of energy and excitement into physical form. Inclined at five-degree angles – a feature celebrated by the buildings’ name – its two 37-story glass towers shimmer day and night. Each tower boasts a roof-top, infinityedge pool, hot tub, sun deck and bar on the 37th floor which offers unparalleled views of the Las Vegas Strip. Adjacent to the pool deck is a recreation room, private media room and a fitness center with men’s and women’s steam rooms and saunas.
