Casino plan developing for The Gallery at Market East

January 25, 2009

PHILADELPHIA City officials report that Foxwoods casino officials will spend the next few months developing a detailed plan to build a casino at The Gallery at Market East near Chinatown and the city's historic district.

Alan Greenberger, executive director of the city planning commission, believes the city will approve or reject the casino plan before Foxwoods submits it to state gaming officials.

Greenberger said last Monday, "It's a unique situation that the Gaming Control Board is going to have to figure out how they want to deal with. But it isn't impacting what we need to do, which is to get them to start developing a design so we can critique it, shape it, and either approve it or disapprove it."

The Chinatown site is a revision to Foxwoods' original plan to build on the Delaware River waterfront in South Philadelphia. However, last fall Foxwoods agreed to consider other sites after outcries from local residents.

A decade ago, Chinatown residents defeated plans to build sports stadiums in the area, and similar reaction may be a formable obstacle for a casino.
