Gateway Casinos wants permission for a gaming expansion at the Grand Villa Casino and Delta Burnaby Hotel.

Canada.- Gateway Casinos & Entertainment (GCE) and BC Lottery Corporation (BCLC) are looking for the necessary permissions from the City of Burnaby, in Canada, in order to expand the gaming area of the Grand Villa Casino and Delta Burnaby Hotel complex.

Gateway Casinos wants an expansion of the permitted number of slot machines in the casino from 1,200 to 1,600 over two different phases. The first one would be done by 2020 and would feature the relocation of administrative office space for an expanded gaming floor.

“There would be no technical added density to the project. However, there would be a shift in uses with respect to floor areas and gaming positions that would need to be calculated with respect to parking demand and supply,” reads a letter of intent by Mallen Gowing Berzins Architecture, Daily Hive reported.

Contrary to the first phase, the second would present physical changes to the casino building. An expansion of the gaming area will be required for Gateway Casinos, and this will be pursued with a future rezoning application.
