    Mr. Lawrence Ho, Co-Chairman and CEO of Melco Crown Entertainment, said: “The Company is proud to announce its partnership with the award-winning, internationally renowned Dame Zaha Hadid on the design of the new hotel tower, which will add a truly iconic landmark to the Cotai skyline. This year marks the fifth anniversary of our flagship resort City of Dreams. Today’s unveiling ceremony of the new hotel tower represents another key milestone for our World-class integrated resort.”

    Development of the new hotel commenced in 2013; the project is expected to open in early 2017. With 40 floors and a GFA of 150,000m2, the tower will house approximately 780 guestrooms, suites and sky villas. The rectangular outline of the site is extruded as a monolithic block with a series of voids which carve through the centre of the tower, merging traditional architectural elements of roof, wall and ceiling to create a sculptural form that defines many of the hotel’s internal public spaces. The tower’s design resolves the many complex programs for the hotel within a single cohesive envelope and combines dramatic public spaces and generous guest rooms with innovative engineering and formal cohesion.
