  • Urban One Inc
    This is a Maryland company with the mission "to be the most trusted source in the African-American community that informs, entertains, and inspires."

In February the Richmond City Council will review the proposals submitted by each of the three parties, and a final winner will be chosen for the ballot initiative.

January 23, 2020

Proposed Richmond Casino

The Pamunkey Indian Tribe announced plans yesterday for a $350 million casino resort in South Richmond. The tribe will seek gaming authorization from the U.S. Department of Interior to build the casino under the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) rather than seek a commercial license from Virginia under pending legislation.

The Richmond casino proposal is the second for the Pamunkey Indian Tribe. The announcement follows 5 days after signing a land agreement with the City of Norfolk to build a $700 million commercial casino resort on the banks of the Elizabeth River.

The proposed casino site is 36 acres in South Richmond that are located on Ingram Avenue at Commerce Road with primary access from Interstate 95 at Maury Street.

Chief of the Pamunkey Indian Tribe, Robert Gray, made this statement:

"We are very excited about our plans to bring a great resort and casino to Richmond. Not only does this help fulfill the government's intent to use gaming to help us secure our future, but it will also be a great economic boost for the city of Richmond and its citizens."
