Planned Site for BCN World.

Salou, Tarragona, Catalunya.

After losing the bid for Eurovegas to Madrid, the Catalan government suddenly presented BCN World in an attempt to save face. Although it was a scaled-down version of Eurovegas, the regional government bowed down to the dazzling promises of 20,000 jobs and the potential investment of 4.5 billion euros, and promptly reformed the casino law, which will reduce gaming taxes by more than 80% and will make it possible to gamble on credit. Despite that the company behind the project dropped out, the Catalan government is desperately clinging to the project, and has granted permission for building up to 3,600 homes besides the complex.
