MGM Grand Hotel Slates Series of Opening Parties Urban College Planned in Vacant Store ii BY BOB GRIFFITH . Times Stall Writer -BAKERSFIELD An innovative concept Wending architecture and education is awaiting final approval from the state Office of Architecture and Construction before being transformed into concrete reality. Now funded in the 'governor's budget on a patching basis with the Kern Community College district (KCCD) is the refurbishing of a block-sized former Federated Stores 2nc. department store in downtown Bakersfield into a two-story, 80,000-square-foot Downtown Center of Bakersfield Community College at a cost of $2.2 million. Furnishing and equipment will cost another $300,000. Dr. John Collins, Bakersfield College president, said, "Everything is ready to roll as soon as the office of architecture gives technical approval to the . final plans. Our aim is to open for the 1974 fall" semester." 'Out-Reach' Concept Working closely with KCCD and BCC officials, David R. Cartnal, of Big gar and Cartnal, Architects, of Bakersfield, has planned for the molding of steel, glass and open space to reflect the "outreach" concept now transforming junior colleges throughout the state. The KCCD project is believed to be the first in the state in which a formerly vacant structure in a downtown area is being used to '.'reach out" to an indeterminate number of potential post-secondary age (as opposed to higher education) students. Only the first floor, containing 35,000 assignable square feet, will be utilized ' during the next few years, pending funding, and demonstrable" need for finished construction of the second floor. The cost of the building and adjacent parking lot for 233 cars was $887,539. The construction cost will total an estimated $1,247,250. Open Air Mall Plans include closing of one street between 21st and 22nd Sts. at K St., and construction of an open air i mall built to admit emergency vehicles. Bakers field city councilmen ap proved closing of the : street effective Jan. 1 with the stipulation that the street will be rededicated without charge to the city. Deferred indefinitely by purchase of the downtown facility are plans to construct a new community college campus estimated to cost $4,525,200 and oth. er building projects. Total estimated outlay without the downtown structure was estimated at $6,638,-169, half to be financed by the state. The new 10-year construction plan of the college includes no new con-, struction until the 1978-79 school year. Enters New Market Levitt and Sons 'Inc. of New York has entered the Atlanta single-family home market through a subsidiary, Levitt Residential Communities Inc., by opening Levitt Homes at Creekwood south of downtown Atlanta at Rex in Clayton County. 'A series of parties will-begin Wednesday to mark December as the premiere month for the MGM Grand v Hotel, a 26-story, $106-mil-. liori hotel and entertainment complex in Las Vegas. Its developers say that, with 2,100 rooms and 2.5 million square feet of floor space, it is the largest resort hotel in the world. Its ballrooms, theater and other facilities are capable of 'seating 10,000 persons at one time. It also has the only Jai Alai Fronton (site of what is called the world's fastest game and associated pari-mutuel betting) in the western United States and the only fronton operated in connection with a hotel in the world. Ground was broken for the hotel in April, 1972. The first framework steel was erected in August, 1972, and the building was topped out on Oct. 15, 1972. More than 20,000 tons of structural steel was used, every pound of which went from trucks' directly into the air through a sophisticated scheduling program that eliminated ground storage.
