The Pennsylvania facility Rivers Casino Pittsburgh unveiled its plans to build a US$60 million, seven-story hotel attached to its casino.
US.- Rivers Casino Pittsburgh announced on Tuesday that it will expand its services by breaking ground on a US$60 million North Shore hotel later this summer. The facility will be attached to the existing casino on the east facade, facing the Carnegie Science Center.
The four-story property will be called “The Landing Hotel Pittsburgh” and will include 219 guest rooms. The casino received the approval for a hotel from the Pittsburgh Planning Commission in 2017. The development was postponed following the approval of gaming legislation that added category 4 “mini-casinos” and reshaped the Pennsylvania casino landscape.
“The time is right,” said Greg Carlin, CEO of Rush Street Gaming and Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “Statewide gaming expansion changed our schedule, but never our intentions. Rush Street always envisioned a hotel for Rivers to create a full-service destination on the North Shore. We see it as a natural evolution.”
Rush Street Gaming revealed that the hotel will add approximately 128 permanent new hotel and casino jobs, along with 1,400 temporary construction jobs. To build the hotel, Rush Street has selected Pittsburgh-based Massaro Construction Group.
