The Venetian Macao Resort Hotel

Cotai, Macau - Las Vegas Sands Corp. is one of the world’s leading global developers of high-end hotels and integrated resorts. Their vision was to introduce their successful resort concept into the Asian market with The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, in Macau.

1,000,000 sq feet

of retail space

350+

retail tenants managed

The retail component of the resort, The Grand Canal Shoppes, provides around 1,000,000 sq feet of themed retail for over 350 tenants. Delivering a high-profile scheme that involves mass retail openings is a highly complex project as it involves simultaneously managing a significant number of local and international organizations, consultants, designers and contractors, to complete their stores in time for the Grand Opening. This project was also to be completed whilst the Venetian Macao Resort was in the final stages of its construction.

Arcadis was appointed as Retail Tenant Coordinators to provide specialist services to help manage and coordinate the technical requirements for all tenanted space within The Venetian Macao.  

Our team worked closely with over 350 tenants to ensure that they were individually supported and controlled within the site, from technical coordination, design approvals to overall program control. We oversaw the entire project and provided individual retail tenants with a point of contact to ensure that they met the required regulations, adhered to retail brand guidelines, and were on track for a timely store completion.


The outcomes we delivered:
  • Maximized the number of tenants open for the planned Grand Opening
  • Identified potential risks to the project early and  managed them effectively
  • Coordinated the delivery and opening of various sized stores simultaneously
  • Managed and coordinated all tenancy inspections, handovers and retailer requested works
  • Provided cost effective technical and design solutions
