Plans includes the development of a new four-star hotel, additional gaming space and more dining, retail and group meeting options.
Construction on the project, which is supporting 1,000 construction jobs, has commenced and the first two floors of the new hotel have already been erected.
The first portion of the expansion is expected to open later this summer, with total completion of the project by the end of 2020.
The nearly 500,000-sq.-ft. expansion consists of a 10-story, 400-room four-star hotel with five-star suites, and a two-story grand entrance. It will also include several new food and beverage venues, conference and meeting rooms, a high-tech fitness center and additional retail space.
Resorts World Casino New York City is the only casino in New York City, attracting approximately 10 million guests annually while generating over $2 billion for the state’s education system since opening in 2011.
