Australian construction group, Leighton Holdings, has signed a deal in joint venture with China State Construction Engineering to build the Melco International/Publishing and Broadcasting (PBL) casino project in Macau.

The project is worth US $1.3 billion (HKD10.1 billion).

The work entails building four 28 to 35-storey deluxe hotel towers, serviced apartments, an underwater-themed casino, a luxury retail arcade, multiple food and beverage outlets and a world-class performance hall.

The project is located on the Cotai Strip, an area of reclaimed land that the Macau Government intends to develop into the ‘Las Vegas’ of the East.
