Controversial Kingsway Project Gains More Traction
Every week that goes by these days there seems to be some new casino development project in the works somewhere across Canada. One of the most recent is the polarizing Kingsway Entertainment District project that has been pencilled in for Greater Sudbury in October of this year. This is a project that has made the news of late due to its controversial nature, and the impacts it can have on the surrounding province.
As you might be unsurprised to hear, the chief partners in this process include Gateway Casinos and the Hilton hotel chain. Gateway has made the news a lot in the last year, most recently relating to its C$57 million casino transformation. Not to mention the issues the company has encountered with workers strikes across British Columbia. Well, now it seems as though they are at the forefront of yet another casino project, this time a planned one in Greater Sudbury.
It seems that this will be a C$100 million arena focused on sports, gambling, and entertainment. The problem is that it seems as though there have been issues regarding zoning, which does appear to cause a lot of problems for many of these planned projects.
One of the best things about this development project is the fact that it will allow the arena to hold concerts and sporting events as well as casino tables and slots. This is going to create a lot of new jobs, not to mention bringing in plenty of money for the local area as well.
