Caesars Entertainment’s new casino in Virginia is one step closer to breaking ground after Danville City Council approved the company’s rezoning request.
US.- Danville City Council has approved a rezoning of the site for a new Caesars casino in Virginia.

Caesars expects the project to be complete by 2023 and to generate 1,300 full-time positions and a further 900 during construction.
The venue will host multiple restaurants and bars, a 300-room four-star hotel, a 2,500-seat live entertainment venue, a 35,000-square-foot conference centre, a pool and a spa.
