Since it’s not exactly close to any major population center, developers of a casino project in Inner Mongolia plan to develop an entire community.
“China Vegas: The New World Resort City” will be home to as many as 5 million people if developer China Holdings, Inc. of Beijing comes through on all its plans. The project will be developed on a 100-square-kilometer plot and will include everything you might find in a major city: commercial buildings, office buildings, residential development, shopping centers, casinos, golf courses, horse-racing facilities and recreation and entertainment facilities. Five-star hotels and themed casinos linked by skyways will be part of the entertainment complex.
But even if the residents don’t move in right away, the developers say Beijing is close enough to provide customers: 45 minutes by air or four to five hours by train.
China Holdings last month announced it has hired one of the largest planning and architecture firms in the world, Perkins Eastman of New York.
“We are honored to contract Perkins Eastman and its specialists team to provide architect and planning services to our (project) in Inner Mongolia,” said Julianna Lu, the chairwoman and founder of China Holdings, Inc. “We are creating one of the most magnificent new cities in China and the world, and we are creating a world event, a world new resort city in China which will grow in the next 10 to 20 years as spectacular opportunities and contributions to China, the world and the world economy.”
