MANILA, Philippines – The operator of Resorts World Manila has pushed back the opening of its second casino resort that will be rise in Pagcor Entertainment City as a group led by taipan Andrew Tan plans to break ground for Resorts World Bayshore City in the next 90 days, with the first phase expected to be completed in the year 2018.
Kingson Sian, president of Alliance Global Group Inc. (AGI), which is in partnership with Malaysia’s Genting group in gaming unit Travellers International Hotel Group Inc. said that the completion of the project was pushed back from the original date of 2016 because the turnover of the land property in the complex was delayed.
The first phase of Resorts World Bayshore will occupy less than a third of the 31-hectare property. The first phase of the resort will include three hotels with a combined portfolio of over 800 rooms, a 3,000-seater grand opera house, a shopping mall, residential towers and a gaming area that will be larger than Travellers’ existing facility in Newport City located across Terminal 3 of Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Pasay City.
Sian told reporters that among the three hotel brands that will rise in the first phase of Resorts World Bayshore, would be Japanese luxury hotel brand Okura.
