The casino investor said that the extension will likely include a casino.
Macau.- The Honk-Kong listed Success Universe Group Ltd said that even thought they haven’t submitted a construction plan for the third phase of the Ponte 16, they’re planning on including gaming on the extension as well.
According to GGRAsia, the third phase of the casino and hotel complex is set to include a shopping mall. Hoffman Ma Ho Man, Success Universe Group’s executive director and deputy chairman, said: “We’ll also strive to add gaming there in the third phase. But this is a decision that we can only confirm later, once all the design plans for the extension are approved by the government. In the plan that we’ve submitted before, parts of phase three involved piling works to be done directly on water, but local authorities have said that they didn’t want any buildings to be constructed above the water.”
The executive director also confirmed that the expansion has to be built on the existing site of the casino and hotel complex, therefore they will likely sacrifice the existing podium for accommodating purposes. The company still doesn’t have an exact timeframe to present the new construction plan.
