Rensselaer Casino Proposal Moves Forward
Another casino unveiling is on tap for the Capital District.
The public will get a look at what developers envision for a casino that would be sited on 24 acres along the Hudson River in the city of Rensselaer - earlier this month the common council voted 6 to 1 approving the casino project, expected to include a hotel, gaming rooms and a parking garage.
Rochester developer David Flaum, Capital District OTB and the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma's Global Gaming Solutions have partnered under the moniker NYS Funding LLC.
The unveiling is at 7 tonight at City Hall. Other developers have proposals out for casinos in Schenectady, East Greenbush, Amsterdam and Howes Cave in Schoharie County.
