The next step is a Central Park to be constructed in the centre of the racecourse complete with a wide range of sporting facilities.
Phase 2 will see the construction of a new administration building along with new Member’s Club facilities.
Phase 3 will see the addition of a Riding School and a Horse Theme Park.
The final Phase 4 will encompass the construction of a two new hotels with panoramic views of the racetrack that will be complemented by an Apartment Complex and Tennis Centre.
To enhance access to the MJC Complex an application has been lodged to connect directly to the Macau Light Rapid Transit Station.
