he USD 3.2B Hollywood-inspired project by Melco Crown Entertainment had the master planning and exterior design concept created by the Group.
Gary Goddard, Chairman and CEO of the Group, was in attendance during the opening ceremonies on Tuesday for the new Studio City in Macau, which also featured appearances from such notable celebrities as Robert DeNiro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese, and Mariah Carey.
Studio City International Holdings, a company led by Lawrence Ho and a subsidiary of Melco Crown Entertainment, selected Gary Goddard and his company Gary Goddard Entertainment, a unit of the Goddard Group, for the master planning and architectural design of its new integrated resort.
“Because we share a unified vision when it comes to Hollywood and the world of motion pictures, our cooperation with the Studio City management team was highly productive resulting in one of the most exciting, dynamic and architecturally stunning integrated resorts ever created, not only in Macau, but in the world,” said Goddard.
Building upon Lawrence Ho’s vision for a resort inspired by the world of motion pictures, Goddard worked closely with Ho to ensure the project would be completely unique compared to anything else in Macau, Hong Kong, or anywhere else on the planet. With 1,600 rooms, this multi-billion dollar project is destined to become the new iconic ‘Must See & Must Experience’ resort casino in Macau.
“The design for Studio City is so fantastic, that not only will it draw visitors from Macau, I believe it will also act as a magnet for visitors staying in Hong Kong and in cities throughout China who might not otherwise have planned a visit to Macau,” remarked Goddard.
