Melco Crown Entertainment and Taubman Asia yesterday unveiled plans to develop a retail project to be located at Studio City, a cinematically themed entertainment, retail and gaming resort currently under construction on the Cotai Strip.
Named The Boulevard at Studio City, the project is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2015, coinciding with the opening of the integrated resort.
According to a Melco press release, the mall will be “a unique, 300,000 sq. ft. ‘immersive’ retail entertainment environment, [that] will bring the world’s best shopping to life in Macau by transporting guests to high-energy street-scapes, entertaining them at every turn with featured streets and squares inspired by iconic shopping and entertainment locations, including New York’s Times Square and Hollywood’s Beverly Hills.”
Lawrence Ho, co-chairman and CEO of Melco Crown Entertainment said: “With the combination of Melco Crown Entertainment’s expertise in developing world-class integrated entertainment resorts and Taubman Asia’s extensive experience in the global retail industry, I am confident that The Boulevard at Studio City will deliver an exciting and dynamic shopping environment that will delight customers and bring an additional, new and unique non-gaming attraction to Macau.”
