Crown Sydney

Overview

Crown Resorts is in the process of constructing and operating Crown Sydney, the first six-star hotel casino resort of its kind in Sydney. It is located to the south of Barangaroo on Sydney Harbor. It is going to be a world-class facility featuring 350 suites and hotel rooms, signature restaurants, luxury apartments, bars, swimming pool, spa facilities, luxury retail outlets, VIP gaming, and conference rooms. Crown Sydney’s location is quite strategic, presenting a rare opportunity to deliver a prestigious landmark of international significance on one of the loveliest harbours in the world.

Ever since the Olympics of 2000, Barangaroo is the largest urban regeneration project ever to be undertaken in Sydney. It also happens to be among the most important waterfront transformations currently being undertaken all over the world. The site comprise three development areas, independent and yet interdependent on one another—Barangaroo Central, The Headland Park, and Barangaroo South. The developer of Barangaroo South is Lend Lease, which has signed an exclusive deal with Crown Resorts to construct Crown Sydney.

Crown Sydney Hotel Resort received conditional approval from the NSW Planning Assessment Commission, which reviewed its development application thoroughly. Throughout its planning process, Crown Resorts consulted Sydney’s industry representatives, stakeholders, the City of Sydney, local businesses, as well as residents. The company will continue doing this till the completion of its construction project.

Barangaroo offers a rare opportunity for the creation of a new zone for guests, employees, as well as residents. It connects the harbor and the CBD and throws it open to public use. Over 50% of the project will be meant for the entertainment of the public and will include a brand new park.

Gaming

The Government of Australia has agreed to all the conditions put forth by the Labour to get its approval for the Crown Sydney Hotel Casino Resort project. Accordingly, the project received the green light only after it changed its plans to include no poker machines. The project is also required to avoid encroachment of public spaces and to restrict its gambling floors only to VIP members.

Crown Sydney has also received a gaming license that will remain valid for the next 99 years. However, this casino will have no poker machines and minimum bet limits of $20 for blackjack, $30 for blackjack, and $25 for roulette will be set. Only guests and members will be granted access to the gambling floors.

Overseas and interstate players can become members of Crown Sydney, but they will have to undergo a cooling off period of 24 hours. This cooling off period is not required if they show that they are already VIP members of some other casino.
