Sands Cotai Central expansion opens with Apple anchor

Sands Cotai Central has opened phase four of its retail offer, adding almost 100,000sqft of retail space and 25 retailers.

At the heart of the expansion is an Apple store, which opens today.

The new space is home to several brands new to Macao: Calvin Klein Performance and Razzle. Other stores to open are MLB, Esprit, Guess, Watson’s, Noble Mart, Levi’s, Florsheim, Timberland, The North Face, Boy London, Zaxy and Bauhaus.

Later this year, several restaurants will be added to the line-up, including Chiado, a modern yet authentic Portuguese concept developed in partnership with celebrity chef Henrique Sa Pessoa, and Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao, which brings a contemporary twist to classic Beijing, Szechuan and Shanghai cuisine.

“The addition of these new stores, especially the introduction of an iconic Apple Store, continues to ensure we provide our customers with more new-to-market brands, more choice and more amazing experiences,” said David Sylvester, executive VP of global retail at Las Vegas Sands Corp.

Sands Cotai Central, which celebrated its sixth anniversary in April, has been the focal point of a wide range of products, offerings and experiences on the Cotai Strip, with access to four hotels since it opened in 2012.  

Earlier this year Sands China revealed plans to transform Sands Cotai Central into The Londoner Macao, which will feature new attractions including some of London’s most-recognisable landmarks.
