Melco Crown Entertainment, a developer and owner of casino gaming and entertainment resort facilities in Asia, has unveiled the project details and design of the fifth hotel tower at City of Dreams – the company’s flagship property in Cotai, Macau. With 40 floors and a gross floor area of 150,000 square meters, the tower was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and houses approximately 780 guest rooms, suites and sky villas. The hotel also includes a variety of meeting and event facilities, gaming rooms, lobby atrium, restaurants, spa and sky pool. The design combines dramatic public spaces and generous guest rooms with innovative engineering and formal cohesion. The outline of the site is extruded as a monolithic block with a series of voids which carve through the center of the tower, merging traditional architectural elements of roof, wall and ceiling to create a sculptural form. Development of the new hotel at City of Dreams commenced in 2013. The project is expected to open in early 2017.
