SugarHouse Casino Unveils Massive Expansion Plans
SugarHouse Casino has unveiled plans for a massive, $155 million expansion along the banks of the Delaware.
The expansion will include a second-floor banquet hall with a wall of windows and a riverside balcony. At ground level, SugarHouse will extend its riverwalk and a bike path along the northern end of the property, located on North Delaware Avenue next to Penn Treaty Park.
While the size of the gaming floor will increase from 58,000 square feet to 85,000 square feet, Carlin said most of the expansion would be used for dining and event space. The project includes a seven-story parking garage.
What does it all add up to:
The expansion will allow SugarHouse to increase the number of slot machines from 1,600 to 2,100, and table games from 60 to 90. In addition, the casino will have a poker room.
Once the Blatstein/Wynn sweepstakes are over, there certainly won’t be a shortage of options for gamblers in Philly. [Inquirer]
