Our Businesses

In Australia, Crown wholly owns and operates two of Australia’s leading integrated resorts, Crown Melbourne Entertainment Complex and Crown Perth Entertainment Complex.  Overseas, Crown also fully owns and operates Crown Aspinalls in London.

Crown also has a strong portfolio of future projects and complementary investments, anchored by Crown Sydney, and including our online and wagering platforms.

Crown’s Australian resorts remain the largest single-site private sector employers in their states, with more than 15,800 people working at Crown Melbourne and Crown Perth in over 700 different roles.

Crown Melbourne

The Crown Melbourne Entertainment Complex is one of the region’s leading integrated resorts, featuring luxury accommodation, quality dining and shopping experiences together with world-class gaming and entertainment facilities. Crown Melbourne is also Australia’s largest casino and is a significant driver of tourism within Australia, particularly in Victoria.

Crown’s Australian resorts are consistently recognised for their commitment to their employees and best practice in promoting inclusion and diversity in the workplace. This commitment to our employees has been recognised by the Federal Government, with both Crown Melbourne and Crown Perth being awarded the Australian Employer of the Year Award three times over the last seven years – a record that no other Australian company has achieved.

In addition, in 2015, Crown College was awarded the RACV Victorian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame for Tourism Education and Training having been awarded Gold for three consecutive years.
In February 2014, Crown Melbourne was awarded the 2014 Casino / Integrated Resort of the Year at the prestigious International Gaming Awards (IGA) in London. Considered the definitive awards for outstanding performance in the industry worldwide, it recognised Crown Melbourne’s clear vision and innovative approach to attracting both Australian and international guests.

Crown Melbourne operates three hotels with approximately 1,600 guest rooms across Crown Towers (481 rooms, six-star luxury), Crown Metropol (658 rooms, premium five-star) and Crown Promenade (465 rooms, quality four-star). The proposed Queensbridge Hotel Tower (described in more detail below) is also expected to include a new 388 room luxury six-star hotel.

The casino currently features 2,628 electronic gaming machines and has approval to operate 540 table games.  The Crown Melbourne casino licence extends to 2050.

Crown Perth currently has approval to operate 2,500 electronic gaming machines and 350 table games.

The casino licence extends for the life of the Burswood Property Trust (currently until 2060).  Crown Perth is in the unique position of being the only venue in Western Australia to offer electronic gaming machines and table games.  Crown Perth is the largest single-site private sector employer in Western Australia with more than 5,800 people working on site.

Crown Aspinalls

Nestled in the heart of Mayfair, Crown Aspinalls offers members and guests an exciting and opulent world of international VIP gaming in an environment that only London can provide.

DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

Crown Sydney

Crown Resorts is currently building an iconic six-star hotel resort of which Sydney and Australia can be proud of. Crown Sydney, located on Sydney Harbour at Barangaroo, will be the city’s first six-star luxury resort. The Crown Sydney Hotel Resort will feature 350 luxury guestrooms and suites, world-class VIP gaming facilities, luxury residences, signature restaurants, bars, luxury retail, banqueting facilities and roof top amenity decks with infinity edge pools. It is expected that Crown Sydney will be completed in 2021.
 
The “iconic” status of the hotel resort is assured through the engagement of Wilkinson Eyre, one of the world’s best architectural practices. They have designed a landmark building that will be instantly recognisable around the world and will complement Sydney icons like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.


Proposed Queensbridge Hotel Tower

Crown Resorts and the Schiavello Group received conditional planning approval in February 2017, for a new 388 room luxury six-star hotel and approximately 700 luxury apartments at 1-25 Queensbridge Street, Melbourne on a site adjacent to the Crown Melbourne complex.
 
The proposed Queensbridge Tower to be known as “One Queensbridge” is a 50/50 Joint Venture between Crown and the Schiavello Group. Crown has the right to acquire and manage the hotel on completion. The project remains subject to financing and long form agreements between Crown and the Schiavello Group.
 
Queensbridge Hotel Tower will cement Crown Melbourne’s position as the largest single-site accommodation provider in Australia and create over 3,900 new jobs for Victoria.

Alon Las Vegas

Crown, through a majority owned subsidiary, has an ownership interest in a 34.6 acre vacant site on the Las Vegas Strip. Following an extensive review of funding alternatives for the Alon project over the last two years, Crown Resorts has determined that it will not proceed with the project at this time. As a result, Crown Resorts and its partners are exploring alternatives to optimise the value of their investment in Alon, including an outright sale.
