It is owned and developed by Melco Crown Philippines, a joint venture between Belle Corporation, a subsidiary of SM Investments Corporation, and Melco Crown Entertainment, listed on the HKSE and NASDAQ. The US$1.3 billion resort complex formerly named Belle Grande Manila had its soft opening on December 14, 2014 and its grand opening on February 2, 2015 with live performances from local and international acts such as Gary Valenciano, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Ne-Yo and Kelly Rowland dubbed as the "Concert of Dreams" to mark its grand launch. City of Dreams Manila is a sister resort to City of Dreams in Macau. It is the second of four billion dollar casinos to rise in Manila's gaming strip after Solaire Resort & Casino which opened in March 2013.
The resort consists of six hotel towers with 940 rooms, which includes a Nobu Hotel, Crown Towers and a Hyatt Hotel. It has 365 gaming tables, 1,680 slot machines and 1,680 electronic table games.
