It will be the second half of next year before the Star Entertainment’s Queen’s Wharf development in Brisbane, Australia, is finally open.
The Star Entertainment project that will cost around US$2.5bn will be delayed beyond the expected mid-year projection, reports Inside Asian Gaming.
The project is a joint venture between Star – with half of the shares – and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises of Hong Kong and Far East Consortium, each of which holds 25 per cent of the equity.
The development will contain four premium hotels, 50 restaurants, cafes and bars, large public areas and 2,000 apartments. It will replace the old Treasury Casino with a new venue containing more gaming space.
The delay is blamed on the pandemic, weather and increased development costs.
