The facilty includes over 120,000 sf of casino and entertainment space. The complex includes 1,700 slots, a waterfront pedestrian promenade and plaza, and boutique retail stores, with the option for future development to include expanded gaming, a parking garage, a 500-room hotel and an event center.
The Harman Group also provided structural engineering services for a two-story, 155,000 sf expansion to the existing building. The project will expand the gambling floor from 50,000 to 90,000 sf, and creates space for new restaurants as well as a multi-purpose event venue with views of the river and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.View the Gallery Print PDF
