"The MOON Team is extremely privileged to have secured the talents of Toronto based designer Johnson Chou. From early discussions it was clear Johnson really grasped the overall concept of MOON. Johnson and his superb design team will prove a huge asset in keeping Moon's timetable on a fast track," said Henderson.
"We are also close to appointing a world class Architectural and Structural Engineering group whose talents will bring MOON to life through integrate drawings and highly complex specifications."
Negotiations have also been completed to obtain global expertise in both the culinary and wine arts. When fully complete Moon will encompass 50 world class restaurants catering to every discerning palate. These "best of the best" restaurateurs with Superstar Chefs will draw from a centralized wine cellar holding $100 million dollars worth of wines from every corner of the globe. Moon's culinary school and wine study programs combined with its vineyards, located in the Biosphere, and huge underground wine cellars will together act as a wonderful guest attraction. "If you want to enjoy the best the world has to offer in both food and wine it's all going to be here at MOON, yet another giant leap for the project," said Henderson
MOON, when complete, will house up to ten permanent live shows encompassing all the world's diverse cultures. Guests will in essence be able to circle the globe of entertainment. A television production studio is also planned for moviemakers and television producers to take advantage of Moon's unique design features. In addition the resort will be able to broadcast live television specials and major sporting events from its own satellite facilities to all the major global networks.
Henderson concluded, "When we soft launched the MOON project in October '02 the critics initially said it was too large, too ambitious, however they have changed, and now they see a comparison with Las Vegas where hotels are hitting the 7,000 room mark with over 25 restaurants and four showrooms under one roof. People are now beginning to understand that MOON is realistic and will definitely happen in the near future."
MOON continues to attract global Media attention, with articles in Canada's Lactualite, Spain's GQ, Hong Kong's Asian Hotel & Catering Times, America's Hospitality News, and America's Las Vegas Life.
