HONG KONG -- The battle for casino supremacy in Macau has moved to a new frontier.

The Macau government has tentatively agreed to grant land for the "City of Dreams" resort, featuring an underwater casino hall with a capacity of 450 gaming tables and 3,000 slot machines, one of its developers, Melco International Development Ltd. said in a statement Monday.

The hall "will be surrounded by water and marine life," Melco Group Managing Director Lawrence Ho said in the statement.

The $1 billion project will also house deluxe service apartment blocks, 2,000 hotel rooms, a shopping mall and a 4,000-seat performance hall of about 5 million square feet of floor space.
