SugarHouse expansion plan

SugarHouse Casino has filed its plan for expanding the Delaware River waterfront casino.

SugarHouse expansion plan

    With all this talk about the six contenders for Philly's second casino license, the big question in the room is what is SugarHouse Casino going to do?
    We’ll soon find out.
    This week, SugarHouse, the city's first casino, filed a revised plan for an expansion of its Delaware River gaming hall, located on a site between Fishtown and Northern Liberties.
    During the lunch break, Doug Harbach, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, said there are enough structural changes in the planned expansion that the matter will have to be vetted again at a public hearing.
    Harbach said the garage will not be as many stories are previously thought. A SugarHouse hearing most likely will be held in May, he added.
    The SugarHouse expansion should have been finished by now, but got held up because of a legal dispute between local and Chicago investors.
