The owners of the 75 year old Suffolk Downs race track presented a new resort
casino idea today. If approved, the project will cost an estimated $600 million
and be a world class destination. Plans include a resort with 400 to 600 guest
rooms. There are also plans for dinning, retail shops, and a spa. The current
800,000 square foot grandstand will be renovated to include a clubhouse, gaming,
a restaurant, and retail.
Approval needs to come from the state before plans can proceed. Currently
legislature is meeting to discuss the states proposed gaming regulations. Two
plans are being debated by congress. The state senate would like to allow one
casino in each of the state's three regions. The state's House would like the
market to determine the casino placements. Allowing for two casinos and the
operation of 3,000 slot machines. 750 machines would be allowed at racetracks.
If the owners are granted a state license to run a casino it will create 2,000
immediate construction jobs. As well as 2,250 permanent jobs.
