The developer of a planned casino resort in Punta del Este, Uruguay, has requested more time from the local government to begin work on the Cipriani Ocean Resort, Club Residences & Casino, which will be built on the site of the Hotel San Rafael.
The Maldonado Mayor’s Office expressed concern about the company’s failure to complete construction work. And moreover, he requested a meeting with Giuseppe Cipriani, the project’s Italian businessman.
In response, Cipriani asked the Uruguayan government for patience. He explained that the pandemic has hampered the “mobilization of capital” and, as a result, the development of projects.
