Gateway's Latest Development Sees $57 Million Transformation
Indeed, it seems that Gateway’s expansion is continuing in earnest as they announced that the official opening of brand new Starlight Casino will take place next week – with the date planned as September 26. The casino will actually see the transformation of the existing Palace Casino into Starlight Casino. The move will see an extra 120,000 square feet of gambling paradise added, creating more than 300 extra jobs. Gateway is already well-known for helping bring in more than C$90 million for Edmonton’s economy, and this project is going to help increase that figure.
Gateway CEO Tony Santo seemed thrilled about the upcoming unveiling, and he talked about how “It represents Gateway’s largest redevelopment investment in Western Canada with a $57 million capital investment and over 300 new jobs.” Before adding that it would “… be a significant addition to the entertainment landscape in Edmonton.”
This is a big move for Gateway and looks set to have a really positive impact on the surrounding area, and Alberta as a whole. This is the sort of development project that Gateway might decide they want to do on a more frequent basis these days. It is also something we could well end up seeing en masse from other Canadian casino companies in the future.
If the company can continue in this vein, they will have plenty of good news coming over the next year or so. It seems as though Gateway is on a mission to become the dominant casino and gaming operator, not just in Alberta and B.C., but eventually all across Canada as well!
