Now, the pioneer of old Macau is creating a new landmark – a $3.9 billion resort that will be one of the final projects to open on China’s booming Las Vegas-style Cotai strip. The 92-year-old Ho, through privately held company Sociedade de Turismo e Diversoes de Macau (STDM), presided over much of Macau’s development as a casino city, shielded by a four-decade monopoly on gambling until 2001 when the door was opened for U.S. casino moguls Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn.
