The severe global financial crisis also pressured the company to delay its projects elsewhere to complete the integrated resort.Although Marina Bay Sands has been compared on scale and development costs to MGM's CityCenter, the latter is a mixed-use development, with condominium properties (comprising three of the seven main structures) being sold off。
