This week, gambling conglomerate Gateway Casinos & Entertainment has given a brief update on the construction process of its gaming property in Delta, British Columbia. According to the company, the development of the CA$87 million Cascades Casino Delta is progressing well, as the venue is set to make its grand opening later this year.
The gaming amenity is situated at the former Delta Town & Country Inn site, and it is set to come with a 40,000-square-foot gaming floor, with over 600 slot machines and 30 gaming tables. In addition to that, there will also be the company’s Match Eatery & Public House, the Buffet, and Atlas Steak + Fish Restaurant, which are perfect for grabbing a bite.
Construction Progressing Well
Spokesperson for the gaming corporation, Tanya Gabara commented that workers on the exterior and interior of the Cascades Casino Delta are quite busy these days, while also abiding to the health and safety regulation. According to her, the construction of the property is going according to plan, and the company continues to monitor the situation to ensure a safe environment for workers and the local community.
Ms. Gabara explained that when passing by the site, the project’s exterior features like the sweeping porte-cochere can be seen. In addition to that, the company’s signature Match Eatery & Public House and The Buffet also starting to take shape on the inside. She also shared that the electrical and data infrastructure and cash cage installation has now been completed, while construction of the raised floor gaming area and the Glacier Bar starts soon.
However, the spokesperson did not provide an exact date on the grand opening date, but she says that it should be revealed in the upcoming months. She explained that it is still early to discuss the opening date, as the venue is still in construction, and the company is currently focused on the recovery of its other properties, as some of them were closed down due to the unprecedented situation.
She concluded her statement, by saying that in the upcoming months, the company will shed some more light on the grand opening of the casino project to the public. In her words, with the news, the company will also announce its recruitment program for the property, which is set to come with hundreds of new jobs for the community of Delta.
Hotel Operator Now Assigned
Back in September last year, Gateway Casinos & Entertainment announced that Delta Hotels by Marriott would be part of the property. The five-story hotel would include 120 rooms and meeting spaces. It would also offer a day spa, resort-style outdoor pool and hot tub, along with a fitness facility to its guests. This portion of the complex is also not finished.
A month later, in November 2021, the gaming conglomerate revealed its overview plans for mobility and accessibility features at its Delta casino property. The company said that the new casino would come with accessible parking stalls in the parkade, located in close proximity to the property’s entrances. Also, there will be wheelchair ramps, where necessary, between levels in the parking, as well as an accessible ramp up from the street level to the restaurant patio.
