Galaxy Entertainment Group, one of Asia’s leading gaming and entertainment corporations, unveiled its launch plans for two highly anticipated projects that will be completed in 2015. GEG delivers HK$43 billion (US$5.5 billion) in a planned HK$100billion (US$12.9 billion) commitment to Macau.
Chairman of GEG, Dr. Lui Che-woo said, “Our commitment to the development and continued success of Macau remains stronger than ever, which is why today, 10 years after making our debut in Macau, we are proud to formally introduce two more groundbreaking projects to our ever-expanding portfolio to support the diversification of Macau to be developed as a ‘World Centre of Tourism and Leisure’.”
In reference to the doubling in size of Galaxy Macau and the Group’s acquisition and renovation of the former Grand Waldo Complex into ‘Broadway at Galaxy Macau’, Vice-Chairman of GEG, Mr. Francis Lui said, “We are now taking our vision even further by doubling the size of our resort and presenting unlimited experiences. Together these add a further 550,000 square meters to our existing developments in Cotai, which will increase our footprint to over 1.1 million square meters of spectacular attractions. Just 18 months ago we completed our acquisition of the Grand Waldo Complex and today, following over HK$5 billion in investment, it is being reborn in tandem with the completion of our flagship resort of Galaxy Macau. Together these new developments deliver a more diverse set of experiences to meet visitors’ growing desire to enjoy a wider world of indulgence, style, fun and privilege.”
In 2015, Galaxy Macau and Broadway at Galaxy Macau will feature the debuts of three hotel brands – making the resort the only one of its kind with six world class hotels in Macau – serving all customer segments.
