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.

Civic consent:

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.

Budgetary determination:

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.’

Mass-market minding:

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.

Tower treatment:

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.

Razon commented…

“As soon as the site is clear, we’ll have the groundbreaking. Our target is June or July.”
