The Philadelphia City Council today unanimously approved the zoning for Stadium Casino, LLC's new destination hotel casino resort in Philadelphia's Stadium District. The zoning was previously approved by the City Council Rules Committee in a unanimous vote of 8-0 and the City Council today approved the zoning 14-0.
The privately financed $450 million world-class project will be located at 900 Packer Avenue, bound by 10th and Darien Streets, and will include a Las Vegas-style casino floor featuring more than 2,000 slot machines and more than 125 table games; a new 200+ room luxury hotel, spa and conference center; valet parking and an approximately 2,600 space parking garage; local and nationally-recognized destination restaurants; and live entertainment venues. The Project is immediately proximate to the Philadelphia Sports Complex, already a major tourist destination, drawing 8.5 million visitors a year. Ideally situated off Interstates 76 and 95, the property is positioned to become a true regional destination resort casino.
