Pagcor gives go-ahead to $200m Clark casino

The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp has given a provisional license to Filinvest Development Corp and its Mimosa Cityscapes unit for a $200 million IR project close to Clark International Airport.

 

“Filinvest Mimosa + Leisure City is envisioned to become the lifestyle destination north of Manila. Its enviable location close to Clark International Airport makes it accessible to both domestic and international tourists,” FDC President Josephine Yap, was cited as saying.

 

Yap noted that the company plans to work with a “leading casino operator” on the project, which will comprise a casino, a lifestyle mall, a five-star hotel and events venue.

 

The project also includes the renovation of the existing Quest Hotel, the two championship golf courses and villas, the reports said.
