Hard Rock Identifies Three Sites for $2bn NY City Casino

Hard Rock International has identified three potential sites to build a $2bn casino in downstate NY.

Hard Rock International has established at least three potential sites for a $2bn New York City casino. The company is waiting for the governor and the committee that's going to send out the request for proposals.

Hard Rock is one of the first to submit an expression of interest to the New York Gaming Commission. Hard Rock Hotel New Yorkers is not one the proposed locations. The company also has partial ownership of Meadowlands racetrack in New Jersey and plans to build a casino there. On Thursday, HardRock announced it will distribute bonuses amounting to $10m among 2,400 of its local NewJersey employees.

The NY Gaming Facility Location Board issued an RFA to open three new casinos in New York. The operator selection process is expected to start late summer or early fall. Bally’s Corporation, Genting Group, MGM Resorts International, Rush Street Gaming, Wynn Resort, and Las Vegas Sands are interested in the project.
