In the Cotai district, the Parisian Macao resort is not near completion, despite having a requirement to be completed by April of this year. The Macau government has now given Sands China Ltd an extension to complete the project at a later date. The deadline was extended to this fall, in November, according to information provided by the Land, Public Works and Transport Bureau to Tribuna de Macau.
In May of 2015, Sands China had sent in an application to gain an extension to complete the property. The company believed that they would be unable to meet the deadline set for April of this year. The property, which has a price tag of $2.7 billion, and a launch date scheduled for later on in 2016.
Sheldon Adelson, the Chief Executive and the Chairman of Sands China, announced after a conference call producing the results of 2015, that the firm was trying to see a September opening for the property. The firm may consider a partial opening if the opportunity presents itself.
The Parisian Macao is a large project, with a restaurant, observation decks and a replica of the Eiffel Tower, to scale. The property will consist of a casino venue as well as 3,000 guest rooms in the hotel. The venue will also be connected to the Sands Cotai Central as Sands China plans on creating a walkover bridge that will be air-conditioned and will have airport-style sidewalks that will move to allow easy passage for visitors.
