Sands China Ltd, owner of the dominant cluster of resorts in Macau’s Cotai district, unveiled its plans today for a US$2.2 billion investment that will create The Londoner Macao. Alongside The Parisian Macao, which opened in 2016, and The Venetian Macao, which opened in 2007, The Londoner Macao is actually just a renovation of the current Sands Cotai Central integrated resort. But its upgrade will see the addition of some new and bigger rooms, plus a façade makeover that will include a likeness of Big Ben and Westminster.
David Beckham, former footballer and British celebrity, was in Macau for the press conference. As can be seen on his Facebook page, they also released a fun new video of him running around London putting post-it notes on iconic buildings and other famous objects that he wants to be moved to Macau.See the story here and the video here.
