Bloomberry to begin development of second casino in 2018

Philippine casino operator Bloomberry Resorts Corporation will likely begin development of its second hotel and casino project in early 2018 instead of 2017, local media reports.

In a recent interview, Bloomberry chairman Enrique Razon Jr. noted that the Quezon City property where it will stand had yet to be cleared of informal settlers, reports Rappler.

"We may start construction early next year," Razon said.

Last year, Razon said he planned to develop the property into a mixed-use development with hotel and casino components.

"It would be more similar to Solaire. There may be some mixed-use because there is no height restriction. There will be a casino," Razon was quoted at the time.
