This is the first time since opening in 2010 where the Las Vegas Sands’ owned property will be closed for an extended period of time, the Bandwagon reports. It was billed the world’s most expensive standalone casino property at S$8 billion (US$5.88 billion), with over 120,000m2 of convention-exhibition space, 74,000m2 of shops, and gaming space of 15,000m2.
This swift closure was in response to the most recent announcement from the Singapore government on 3 April 2020, which announced its strictest measures yet to combat COVID-19 including closure of most workplaces, except for essential services and key economic sectors that are strategic or form part of a global supply chain.
