Hotel proposed near a casino site
PHL Local Gaming L.L.C., which wants to build Casino Revolution at Front Street and Packer Avenue in South Philadelphia, said a New York hotel developer, Fortuna Realty Group, had signed a letter of intent build a 250-room, "four-star" hotel in a development proposed for land adjacent to where the casino would go, if PHL Local receives the license next year.
In addition to the hotel contemplated by Fortnua, the so-called LoSo development would include restaurants, stores, soccer fields, tennis courts, and other recreational facilities.
PHL Local also envisions a 250-room hotel at Casino Revolution.
