Casino operator to build the world’s best hotel in Sydney
Thursday, 02. August 2012, 15:11
Casino operator Crown has announced plans to build super luxury hotel resorts in both Perth and Sydney.
Following the announcement that Crown will spend AUD568
million building a six-star hotel at its Perth casino, James Packer's Crown
Limited has secured approval to build a AUD1 billion hotel development in the
Barangaroo precinct in Sydney.
"Sydney deserves one of the world's great hotels on
its magnificent harbour. My desire is for Crown to build the best hotel in the
world at Barangaroo," Packer said.
Crown said it is currently considering options to
incorporate a VIP only gaming facility at the Sydney hotel.
As a trade-off with the West Australian government, Crown
will be able to expand its gambling facilities in Perth.
Construction of the 25-storey, 500-room Crown Towers Perth
hotel will commence early next year and take three years to complete, according
to a statement from Crown.
Convention facilities, restaurants and high-end retail
will be part of the complex.
Crown will pay the West Australian government AUD62
million to acquire land for the hotel.
The hotel will be the third branded as Crown Towers - the
other two are in Melbourne and Macau.
