Sands China has invested US$2bn in revamping Sands Cotai Central. It plans to finish the façade by December.
Macau.- Sands China’s president, Wilfred Wong, has confirmed that the Londoner Macau will finally open its doors to the public in February 2021.
The hotel, casino, retail and food and beverage outlet areas at the US$2bn transformation of the former Sands Cotai Central will all be inaugurated at the same time.
Wong told the press that Sands China aims to continuously increase its non-gaming areas and has added a concert hall and various dining venues to the old Sands Cotai Central.
The operator had previously hinted the official opening of the Londoner would depend on visitor numbers in Macau increasing. Now Wong has told media he expects hotel occupancy in the city to pass 40 per cent in December.
The exterior wall and entrance are still under construction. The company has estimated the exterior will be completed in December. It has been designed to resemble the architecture of the British Houses of Parliament, including a replica of the clock tower that houses Big Ben.
The casino will have capacity for up to 450 tables and 2,000 slot machines. The complex will include two new all-suite hotels, more than a dozen new restaurants, additional retail, and new MICE and entertainment facilities.
