Melco Resorts & Entertainment has celebrated the construction of Studio City Phase 2 reaching its full height, with a topping out ceremony in Macau.
Located in the Cotai district of Macau adjacent to the Lotus Bridge crossing with mainland China, the Hollywood-inspired Studio City resort has welcomed guests and visitors to the city since 2015.
Melco Resorts & Entertainment, a global developer, owner and operator of integrated resort facilities, appointed Zaha Hadid Architects in 2017 to expand the resort. Studio City Phase 2 will provide new leisure, entertainment and hospitality facilities including one of Asia’s largest indoor and outdoor water parks and a six-screen Cineplex together with extensive conference and exhibition spaces.
The 250,000sq m Studio City Phase 2 includes two hotel towers with 900 rooms and suites, 21,000sq m of shopping and dining as well as 2,300sq m of gaming space.
“Melco has a strong track record of contributing to Macau’s ongoing development as a world centre of leisure tourism. Studio City Phase 2 reaffirms our ongoing commitment to the city and contributes to reinforcing Macau’s non-gaming proposition in Asia and internationally,” said Lawrence Ho, chairman and CEO of Melco Resorts & Entertainment.
Scheduled to complete in December 2022, the Studio City Phase 2 development was named winner of the ‘Regional Award Asia’ at the BREEAM Awards 2021.
