In the Philippines, Bloomberry Resorts Corporation could reportedly begin work to bring a new integrated casino resort to the under-construction Ayala Malls Vertis North retail complex in the northern Manila suburb of Quezon City as early as this summer.
According to a report from GGRAsia, the revelation came from Enrique Razon, Chairman for Manila-listed, Bloomberry, a little over a month after local civic leaders passed an ordinance in support of the planned 3.7-acre scheme.
Fifty-nine-year-old Razon reportedly declared that his firm is planning to finalize the budget for the envisioned Quezon City development, which has been provisional branded as Solaire North, in ‘mid-April or May’ before holding an official groundbreaking ceremony in ‘June or July.’
Bloomberry Resorts Corporation is already responsible for the Solaire Resort and Casino in the Entertainment City district of metropolitan Manila and earlier explained that it hopes to premiere a similarly-branded venue in the 111.1-acre Quezon City retail and entertainments development by 2022. It also previously detailed that the coming Philippines enterprise is to be aimed at mass-market players and furthermore feature a range of non-gambling amenities such as multiple restaurants and numerous meeting facilities.
The envisioned Solaire North development is likely to encompass a 40-story hotel tower with Razon stating that his firm had already ‘secured’ all of the authorizations required to start work including a ‘no objection’ letter from the government of Quezon City.
“As soon as the site is clear, we’ll have the groundbreaking. Our target is June or July.”
