In Las Vegas, Genting held a ground-breaking ceremony yesterday to mark the start of construction on a Resorts World casino resort.
The $4 billion resort will be Chinese themed, and Genting will be targeting the growing number of Chinese tourists to the U.S.
The project’s first phase will include a panda exhibit, a 7.5-acre indoor water park, an aquarium, and a replica of the Great Wall of China. It will also include 3,000 rooms in three hotels, a 4,000-seat theater, and a 175,000 square foot casino, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Genting’s plan for the Omni site and former Miami Herald property is still under wraps, although company representatives have been meeting with county officials recently.
