The Cleveland Casino owned by businessman Dan Gilbert will not open till
mid-2013 due to the economic turn down.
The $600 million facility in downtown Cleveland was slated to open in late 2011 or early 2012 but Gilbert has pushed back the opening till mid-2013 at the earliest. He cited the delay was due largely to land accusation issues. The delay could cost the State and local government as much a $50 million in annual revenue.
"We adjusted that timing, and in Cleveland it is likely to be 2013," Jennifer Kulczycki, Gilbert's spokeswoman at Rock Ventures, told The Plain Dealer. "I don't have a set date, but I would say mid-2013."
