Crown Resorts is planning a significant makeover of their Southbank site, with the aim of revitalizing a precinct that has remained relatively untouched for 30 years.

The master plan for this makeover draws inspiration from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, focusing on the creation of a new retail precinct and al fresco dining.

“We’re hoping for more than a bit of a facelift” said Crown Melbourne CEO, Mike Volkert.

Improvements are also planned for its popular nighttime fire show.
