The government confirmed that it authorised a second casino to be built on the Gold Coast.
Australia.- The Queensland government revealed that it gave the permission for a second casino to be built on the Gold Coast. The state government will launch a campaign to find an international developer.
Mayor Tom Tate announced late last week that State Development Minister Anthony Lynham wrote to him on behalf of Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to confirm the support for a second casino that will compete with The Star at Broadbeach. The second casino could be built on private or public land anywhere in Queensland, local media confirmed.
Last month, ASF tried to negotiate with the government after the latter terminated a US$2.37 billion project that was set to be developed by the Chinese-backed at the Gold Coast. Whilst the company threatened to commence legal action against the government, ASF won’t be part of the second casino negotiations.
A spokesman told the Bulletin that Aquis Australia, together with its partners, is considering a range of different options for the site. The site is a strategic holding that would suit a range of different uses.
