Studio City Phase 2 development in Macau tops out

Studio City Phase 2 by Melco Resorts & Entertainment recently topped out, scheduled for completion before the end of 2022. With a total gross floor area of approximately 250,000 sq m, this new development is located in the Cotai area of Macau, featuring two luxury hotel towers with 900 rooms and suites, a retail complex of over 21,000 sq m, and gaming space of over 2,300 sq m.

Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the US$1.3 billion project further complements the integrated resort’s existing Phase 1. The new entertainment and leisure destination will offer one of Asia’s largest indoor and outdoor water parks, a six-screen Cineplex comprising two regular houses and four VIP suites, as well as a state-of-the-art MICE 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. We are grateful for the support of the Central and Macau governments during the project construction,” said Lawrence Ho, chairman and CEO of Melco Resorts & Entertainment.

“Since opening in 2015, Studio City has become a destination landmark in Macau with its unique entertainment theme and experience,” added David Sisk, chief operating officer of Macau Resorts at Melco. “The extension project will complement our existing offering of ‘next-generation’ world-class entertainment and further enhance the distinctive Studio City experience.”

Studio City Phase 2 has been named winner of the ‘Regional Award, Asia’ at BREEAM Awards 2021 in recognition of its incorporation of sustainable building design, development and management.

According to Melco, the project is progressing and on track for completion before 27 December 2022.
