Earlier today, visionary developer Lawrence Ho announced his boldest and most spectacular project to date: Macau Studio City- an all-new casino resort set to debut on Macau’s famed Cotai Strip this summer.
One truly groundbreaking aspect of this unprecedented resort is the creation of a short film starring some of the biggest movie stars in the world, including Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and legendary director Martin Scorsese. Check out the preview released as part of today’s media event!
More details regarding the project can be found in the official press release:
“We are pleased to announce our involvement as the project’s designer, and we invite you to not only read the official press release below,
Studio City Macau, when it opens in mid-2015, is set to take Macau’s entertainment destination proposition to unprecedented new levels, by providing a ‘next generation’ of outstanding entertainment-driven leisure destination experiences that will help the territory’s evolution into a truly international tourism center.
The Hollywood-themed studio-concept resort is a thrilling new cinematic inspired entertainment and leisure destination and is designed to be the most diversified entertainment offering in Macau. Ideally located on Cotai, close to the Lotus Bridge immigration point connecting Hengqin Island and a future station-point for the Macau Light Rapid Transit (LTR), Studio City will deliver more world-class entertainment amenities than any integrated resort in the market.
Studio City’s stunning Art-Deco facade includes an iconic “Golden Eye” gondola ride which straddles the resort’s two-tower hotel at a height of some 130 meters. The integrated resort will provide the ultimate in sophisticated leisure entertainment, hotel, retail, dining and lifestyle experiences.
The resort’s innovative entertainment offerings include “Studio City Entertainment Center”, a 5,000-seat multi-purpose entertainment center designed to host live concerts, theatrical and sporting events; and “Studio 8”, a 300-seat live-audience TV broadcast studio for reality and game-show productions distributed in the Asia region. The entertainment experiences also include a magic theatre “The House of Magic” and a Warner Bros. Batman-themed motion ride “Batman Dark Flight”, together with a 30,000 square foot Family Entertainment Center for kids filled with Warner Bros.’ and DC Comics’ franchise characters and play-rides.
Studio City is destined to deliver an unparalleled leisure entertainment and hospitality experience, strengthening the depth and diversity of Macau’s leisure, business and tourism proposition as a leading visitor destination in Asia.”
We are pleased and proud to have played a key role in creating the concept, master plan, and developing the design for the project. In addition to being an incredible destination resort the project will feature an amazing retail world based upon the movies, an incredible set of unique attractions, and the GGE-designed double circle ferris wheel, the first ever in the world, and the first ferris wheel to be installed as a major part of the actual architecture of the building. Studio City will become the next great iconic attraction in Macau and follows the success of our prior creation, GALAXY MACAU, which opened in May of 2011. We will continue to update our blog as new developments continue through the opening later this year.
