he Grand Waldo complex has been suspended for operation since last year after Galaxy Entertainment acquired it for US$ 419 million. MrLui, quoted the newspaper, said that the Grand Waldo project will be family-oriented in a complementary positioning to its nearby flagship resort. Regular performances are to be held in the Grand Waldo, like singing and magic acts, he added; he hopes that in the long run the complex can host its own creative shows.
The report did not mention, however, whether the complex will retain any gaming tables or slot machines. According to a note released by Union Gaming Research Macau last year, the Grand Waldo had 38 gaming tables.
MrLui added that the company’s request to build a pedestrian bridge connecting Grand Waldo and Galaxy Macau is still pending government approval, according to the newspaper.
Once the second phase of Galaxy Macau resort is completed next year, MrLui believes it will not be difficult for it to host events and exhibitions accommodating more than 1,000 people. The first and second phases are expected to feature convention facilities for 3,000 people, 3,600 hotel rooms and 200 retail stores.
Visitors currently stay in Galaxy Macau for over two days and MrLui hopes that the length of stay can be extended to three days in the future, the newspaper said.
