The new gaming establishment of James Packer is called Barangaroo. Preparations for the opening again attracted the attention of the public due to the green, who insisted on a more detailed acquaintance with the license issued by Crown Resorts. The government gave Packer permission to build a VIP entertainment area near Sydney Cove. But overly active activists of the “green party” are dissatisfied with the lack of access to the study of some documents.
The local commission, which oversees the gambling activities, has made public the documents that state the further functioning of the VIP resort after 2019 when it opens its doors to guests. They talk about the imposed fees and restrictions that will apply to casino actions. Activists are worried because one of the license contracts was not fully studied by them. Packer responds to this by saying that the details were deliberately hidden from prying eyes in order not to cause discomfort to the license issuer and other parties to the contract.

The authorities insist on the confidentiality of this information, but the greens are on their own – they need to see the entire contract. Local greens claim that some issues directly affect the rights of the public, and they should know what kind of company is involved in construction, what deals were made between it and the authorities, and how this will affect the institution’s activities. If necessary, they will be ready to go to court to obtain documents. Mike Bird, representing the interests of the Sydney authorities, said that due to such heightened interests in documents and treaties, they will soon be demonstrated. “No one hides anything. I have already got used to the fact that greens always think that they are hiding something from them. But now they worry in vain.”
Crown Resorts has acquired a license for the construction of a gambling resort for $ 100 million. The orientation of the casino will be aimed at Australian VIP-guests and gamblers from Asia. The license begins only in 2019 and is valid for 99 years. Building construction requires costs of $ 6 billion. The institution’s specialization will affect the range of games and guest filtering: there will be no standard slots, and for a standard audience the club will be closed.
The company has already built gambling clubs in the Australian cities of Melbourne and Perth. For the most part, Crown is working to expand its influence in Asia and Australia. And the Barangaroo gambling house will be the last detail in building the Packer empire. His recent purchase is a plot of land near the Las Vegas Strip for the construction of his 1st entertainment complex in the United States.
