“We are excited about the imminent opening of City of Dreams Manila. We are planning on opening the doors to customers in December for a sneak peak of what the property has to offer before a grand opening prior to Chinese New Year in 2015,” Melco Crown chairman Lawrence Ho said.

The $1.2-billion City of Dreams Manila is being developed and would be operated by MCE Leisure, a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Melco Crown (Philippines) Resorts Corporation (PSE: MCP) in partnership with Belle Corporation (PSE: BEL) and Premium Leisure and Amusement, Inc. (PLAI) of Premium Leisure Corp. (PSE: PLC) (formerly Sinophil Corp.)

Melco Crown (Philippines) Resorts Corporation (PSE: MCP), is a subsidiary of Melco Crown Entertainment (SEHK: 6883; NASDAQ: MPEL).

The integrated hotel, gaming, retail and entertainment complex on a 6.2-hectare site, is expected to have a total of six hotel towers, including Crown Towers hotel, Nobu Hotel and a hotel managed by the Hyatt Group. City of Dreams Manila would offer over 350 gaming tables, 1,680 slot machines and 1,680 electronic table games, along with 981 hotel rooms and a flurry of retail stores and restaurants.

PAGCORs Entertainment City welcomed its first resort-casino in 2013 with Solaire Resort & Casino while Manila Bay Resorts and Resorts World Bayshore are expected to open in 2015 and 2018, respectively.
