SugarHouse Casino gets first major building permit
March 27, 2009
PHILADELPHIA - The planned SugarHouse Casino is still several major steps away
from ground breaking, but Friday it did get a big step closer. It received a
foundation permit from the city.
Earlier this month, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court stepped in to fast-track the
permitting process and appointed an intermediary to negotiate between the
developer, HSP Gaming LP, and the city. The action cleared the way for issuance
of the foundation permit. City permits are still needed for HVAC systems,
lighting, certificate of occupancy and other requirements.
The developer must also get approval from the Army Corps of Engineers to build
out over the Delaware River by satisfying an archeological survey and proving
the casino would not be built on a historically significant site.
When built, the $550 million SugarHouse Casino will have as many as 5,000 slot
500 Nations is an independent directory and information service free of any gaming operator's control and not affiliated with any casino.
