The Philippines.- Suntrust Home Developers has said that its Westside City Project in the Philippines remains on track for completion in 2024. The company originally hoped for a 2023 opening, but in November that was pushed back to 2024.
The reason for the last delay was not explained, but the company had previously blamed the Covid-19 pandemic.
Delivering its annual report, Suntrust said that as of December 31, 2021, the construction work of pile cap had been completed while the construction works in the basement and ground floor of the hotel-casino have been “substantially completed”
The US$1bn project is set to include 400 gaming tables and 1,200 slot machines, 400 five-star hotel rooms and 960 parking spaces covering 44,000 square metres.
Suntrust Home Developers is indirectly 51 per cent owned by Suncity Group Holdings Ltd, which was run by Macau junket boss Alvin Chau Cheok Wa until his resignation in early December following his arrest over cross-border gambling and money laundering accusations.
