Udenna breaks ground on Cebu casino resort
Philippine-based Udenna Development Corp broke ground a fortnight ago on a casino resort in Lapu-Lapu City, on the island of Mactan in Cebu province. The announcement was made in a Tuesday press release issued by the country's gaming regulator, the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp (Pagcor). The project has been dubbed The Emerald Resort and Casino and was designed by architect Paul Steelman. Mr. Steelman, quoted in Pagcor's release, said that despite featuring gaming areas, the overall property was designed "to be family-friendly". "The palatial aspect of this building will certainly attract more tourists," he added.
