Sheraton back on track

CONSTRUCTION on Sheraton’s high-end hotel in Siem Reap will resume in the beginning of January, said a representative of the hotel’s contractor, TTY Corp. “We’re finishing up the required paperwork for December 1,” said TTY Project Manager Moinn Bin. He added the completed paperwork will clear the way for construction to resume after a hiatus caused by the fallout from the economic crisis. The Four Points by Sheraton Angkor hotel would open its doors by April 2011, he said – a four-month delay on the original schedule – adding that the physical structure of the building is already about 65 percent completed.
