Las Vegas Sands begins marketing campaign for Marina Bay integrated resort
By Wong Choon Mei, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE : US hotel and casino group Las Vegas Sands has begun its marketing campaign for the Marina Bay integrated resort.

At an exhibition to sell conference venues and facilities here on Monday, Sands' Asian arm, Venetian Macau, showcased the Singapore project alongside other similar facilities it is developing in China.

Las Vegas Sands is wasting no time in marketing the Marina Bay integrated resort.

And it says it is seeing keen interest in the project, which will include hotels, exhibition and convention centres, as well as a casino, spread out on a 50.9-acre waterfront site near Singapore's main financial district.

John Catt, Executive Director, Venetian Macau, said, "Las Vegas will be developing its plans and yes, we will provide information as much as possible to those people who will be interested. It's a very exciting, a very exciting opportunity for most people and a lot of people naturally want to get in at the beginning."

Sands is one of the most active players in the Asian hotels and casino scene.

Its subsidiary, Venetian Macau, is developing a US$3 billion leisure and gaming complex on the Cotai Strip in Macau.

Mr Catt said, "Macau and Singapore are two distinct regions with their own catchment areas for business...We don't it see it as cannibalising. Quite the opposite, we see it as complementing and supplementing one another.

"People who may choose to come to one of the two conventions one year may choose, once they have experienced the quality they can get for their corporation, may choose to go to the other in subsequent years."

When fully up and running, the Marina Bay project is expected to boost Singapore's economy by about 0.8 percentage point, with tourism arrivals and receipts adding S$2.7 billion to GDP. - CNA/ms

I took this pic sometime last year, looking at the bay.

The site is where you see those white tents on the empty green land.

Construction is anticipated to start by year's end.

I like the sky garden concept, but the towers are not nice at all.

US firm expects to start building Singapore's first casino this year

SINGAPORE : Las Vegas Sands Corp, which won a bid to build Singapore's first casino, is in talks with the government to refine the project's design and expects to start construction by the end of the year, a company official said.

"Since the design was approved, we have been working through with the Singapore Tourism Board and the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) to refine the design," senior vice president of Asian development Stephen Weaver said.

"In general, it is a question of refining it for better utility for tenants and for users," Weaver told reporters on the sidelines of an international conference on the shopping mall industry.

Construction for the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore's downtown area should start by the end of this year. The casino is to open in 2009.

Weaver said another series of meetings will be held later this month to look at issues such as internal layout to improve traffic flows, creating more interest along the building's facade and adding entry points.

"We know we want to be in the ground this year," he said, referring to the start of construction.

"We have to start to put in the foundations because the critical path to getting it open in 2009 says we have to start piling for the hotel towers."

Sands in May beat Las Vegas rivals MGM Mirage and Harrah's Entertainment and Malaysia's Genting International for the right to build the casino on Marina Bay with its overall proposal aimed at strengthening Singapore's position as a top conventions destination.

The US gaming operator, which already has an Asian presence in the southern Chinese enclave of Macau, will invest more than S$5 billion (US$3.18 billion) into the casino resort, making it one of the most expensive projects of its kind.

Weaver said there was already keen interest from players in the meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) industry and foreign retailers to be involved in the project.

Singapore has also invited bids for its second casino project on Sentosa island. The bidding will close on October 10 and the winner will be announced by the end of the year.

One of the bidders, Bahamas-based Kerzner International and its local partner, real estate developer CapitaLand, disclosed on Tuesday the appointment of celebrated architect Frank Gehry as the principal designer of its proposed Sentosa project.

Gehry, whose world-famous designs include the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, is a winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize modelled on the Nobel awards. - AFP/de

The Skypark will be great coz a beautiful Singapore skyline,
the triple building together with a flat roof structure seem ugry,
the three dooms also unattractive.
