Aquis eyes Las Vegas designers for Casino Canberra

Aquis Group has invited Las Vegas-based architecture firms to submit design plans for Casino Canberra, which the group bought in December for $6 million.
According to local media reports, Aquis may knock down the existing casino building to pave the way for the new developments, which will include world-class restaurants and bars.
Aquis managing director Justin Fung was cited as saying the group sees considerable potential to turn the current casino into a broader leisure, entertainment and nightlife destination.
Las Vegas’s Friedmutter Group and Westar Architects, along with Australia’s DBI, have been invited to submit masterplans for the site after visits to Canberra last month.
Canberra-based Cox Architects will be the lead architects on the project.
