Zaha Hadid Legacy Project Nixed by Developer
While the sudden passing of world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid made headlines earlier this year, there remains a short list of legacy projects that are either under construction or in the planning stages, which if completed will cap off what has been a highly distinguished career.

Jupiters Hotel and Casino Undergoing Huge Revamp and Rebrand

Set in the Gold Coast suburb of Broadbeach, Jupiters Hotel and Casino has been one of Australia's premier entertainment hubs for 30 years. The Star Entertainment Group, owners of the property, see this as the most opportune time to embark on a large-scale revamp of the aging complex, and are spending at least $345 million AUD to refurbish and expand its presence. With assistance from their Hong Kong partners Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and Far East Consortium, the first stage of that redevelopment is currently underway, with an even larger component expected to dazzle in the near future.
