The MGM Grand Macau is a 28-story, 600-room casino resort in Macau which is scheduled for completion in 2007. Under a subconcession approved by the Macau government, the project will be owned and operated through a 50/50 partnership between MGM Mirage and Pansy Ho Chiu-king, the daughter of Stanley Ho. The subconcession is one of several examples of new construction following the end of the government-granted monopoly held for decades by Stanley Ho.
Initial plans calls for a 222,000 square foot split-level casino, with 300 table games and 1,000 slot machines. The property will also include a 1500-seat theater, a 5500-square foot nightclub, 13,500 square feet of meeting and convention space including an 11,000 square foot ballroom, a 25,000-square-foot spa, and nine restaurants, including one on the roof with views of the city and the harbour. The 1500-seat theater has been downsized and is pending construction because MGM could not acquire Cirque Du Soleil to perform at their casino as an attraction.
Soon after Wynn Macau expansion plans became public, the MGM Grand Macau announced its own plans for expansion, only weeks after the project was publicly launched. The expansion will add 72,000 square feet to the casino floor’s 2nd level. The additional space doubles the number of slot machines and adds another 100 table games, which will make it the largest casino floor in the city. Another feature that they have is a new Portuguese garden under a conservatory. While this is still in design, it promises to be a good tourist attraction. MGM Grand Macau is scheduled to open in November 2007.
This casino will also be connected to the future Mandarin Oriental hotel, which is expected to open close to the Nape waterfront district in 2009 as Macau’s second Mandarin Oriental property.
