Cascades Casino Delta is one of Gateway Casinos & Entertainment’s projects currently under construction. Initial projections for the launch ceremony were that the new complex would be ready to welcome its first casino patrons by the end of 2020. For the time being, however, the casino operator could not pinpoint an exact launch date for the premium casino location replacing Delta Town & Country Inn.
When it comes to major construction projects, sticking to the timeline is essential as it maintains a steady pace of work and guarantees the timely opening of the location. Gateway Casinos is known for its renovation work at existing casino complexes, as well as with the premium quality of its independent facilities built from scratch. The upcoming casino complex in Langley is among entirely new projects.
Construction in Its Initial Phase
Reshaping the landscape of a given town even if it is a smaller project is a responsible task, which should be taken seriously. Gateway Casinos is currently working on the land preparation where the casino complex is about to be built. A spokesperson for the casino operator revealed that construction work should enter its next phase at the beginning of 2020 when the building would begin taking shape.
Experience shows that casino complexes built from scratch usually take about a year to be finished and ready to welcome their first patrons ready to try their luck. Cascades Casino Chatham in Ontario saw its soft opening on July 16, about a year after its official groundbreaking ceremony. The casino venue in Langley could also take up to a year, making the end of 2020 a possible casino launch period.
As of now, it is safe to say that the construction phase is progressing well and the casino operator is content with the pace of development. Upcoming months are projected to see more details around the casino venue being issued, as we approach the building phase. The winter months would call for work on the interior of the building, as well as on its furnishing.
Launch by the End of 2020
The CA$70-million casino venue would feature both gambling and family-friendly offerings ready to transform players’ lives and make them much more vibrant. The City Council gave a green light of Cascades Casino Delta mid-2018, but the Ministry of Highways was another hurdle for it. April saw the demolition of one of Langley’s symbols for generations.
The former hotel location is located at the junction of highways 17A and 99 and it was the last thing standing in the way of casino complex construction. Back in the spring, Gateway Casinos made it clear that some areas of the future construction site would have to undergo a special hazmat abatement. Cascades Casino Delta will introduce locals to Match Eatery and Public House, Atlas Steak + Fish, and The Buffet.
The casino is also going to bring a five-story hotel building. The gaming venue itself is going to feature 500 slot machines, as well as a total of 24 table games, potentially featuring cashless gaming action only, if lawmakers give their approval and make this venue a pioneer on a national scale.
