One of the international gambling companies with the best presence on a global scale – Hard Rock International – revealed some details of its Hard Rock Entertainment World proposal. The latter is expected to turn into one of the largest resort destinations on the territory of Europe.
The Chief Executive Officer of Hard Rock International who is also Chairman of the company, Jim Allen, said that it was a great honour for the gaming operator to partner with the Catalan Government for the Hard Rock Entertainment World project. Mr. Allen also shared that the company’s team was impatient to offer local customers year-long experience, first-class entertainment and excellent gaming and leisure options to the region.
The resort is set to be located in Vila-seca and Salou (Tarragona), Spain. It is to combine hotels, as well as gaming and entertainment areas offering various shopping and dining options for the visitors. The gaming operator revealed that its new project in Spain has already been defined through a thorough Zoning Plan, which has got the approval of the local Government.
The new project has a maximum capacity of 745,000 square metres and would take an investment of €2,000 million, including the land and infrastructure costs needed for the development phases over the upcoming years.
Hard Rock International revealed that the first phase of the hotel and gaming resort is planned to be headlined by the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Terragona integrated resort. The latter would also include a PortAventura partnership as far as the development of 500-room family-oriented hotel is concerned. Also, a luxurious shopping destination of around 10,000 square meters is to be developed for tourists, with over 75 shops planned to be situated on that space.
Of course, the new gaming and entertainment project of Hard Rock International would result in creating a great number of new jobs. It is also expected to attract direct financing from foreign investors. The minimum investment for the first development phase of the resort is estimated to over €600 million, with over 11,500 direct and indirect construction and ongoing jobs expected to be created. A massive economic impact amounting to €1.3 billion of the Hard Rock International new project is expected to be brought to the region.
Of course, the Hard Rock Hotel would be one of the main attractions in the Hard Rock Entertainment World resort. The hotel is expected to offer 600 rooms located to a space of about 100,000 square meters. This would make the hotel one of the largest on the territory of Europe. The casino venue, on the other hand, is expected to feature a total of 100 table games as well as 1,200 slot machines. A number other attractions will be featured by the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Terragona.
The hotel, casino and entertainment destination will be able to host more than 15,000 people, so the Hard Rock brand’s new project would probably become one of the most-visited and preferred gaming, hotel and entertainment destinations over the upcoming years.
