Hotel Central remains in ‘suspension of business,’ according to information provided to Business Daily by the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO).
The Office outlined that is has already received the ‘related application for change of facilities’ from the property owner, adding that it is ‘currently waiting for the applicant to follow up with the amendments required to be made on its application.’
MGTO had not provided clarification to Business Daily about the nature of the ‘amendments’ requested of the owner of Hotel Central by the time this story went to print.
On October 24, 2016, the consortium that bought the property in early 2016 announced that it was planning to renovate the building and re-open it as a hotel, according to a press release from the Government Information Bureau (GCS).
Although no design details have been disclosed so far, the hotel’s current owners have claimed they planned for the new hotel to be ready for the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Macau SAR, in 2019.
According to the Cultural Heritage Protection Law, the 89-year old Hotel Central, located on Avenida Almeida Ribeiro and in the vicinity of Senado Square, is considered as one of the architectural complexes and sites in that area.
In previous replies to Macau Business, the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC) explained that it ‘expressed its views regarding the protection of cultural heritage on the basis of the overall protection of the complex.’
