An Inside Look At The New $535M Proposed BC Place Casino

BC Place Casino

Once again, Paragon Development has proposed a Casino next to BC Place, this time slated to cost $535 million dollars!

The new “BC Place Casino” development will feature two luxury resort hotels, conference centre, restaurants, retail space and a new home for the existing Edgewater Casino consistent with the City of Vancouver’s rezoning approval in the Fall of 2011. The resort is expected to open at the end of 2016.

This new approximately 675,000 sq.ft. urban resort development will create an estimated 2,0001 new and ongoing jobs associated with the operations of the hotels, conference center, restaurants, fitness center, spa and other facilities and services. Construction and development work will also create approximately 4,500 local jobs. Once opened, the new facility will generate an estimated $180M annually for the local economy. This will be supplemented by an estimated $87M in annual visitor spending generated outside the resort.

The new multi-use urban resort will create an animated streetscape and vibrant outdoor gathering space for the community and visitors; and convenient connections between Yaletown, BC Place and downtown Vancouver through improved pedestrian walkways. This will be Western Canada’s first and only urban resort with hotel, restaurant, lounge and meeting space that is adjacent to a stadium – B.C. Place.

In addition to two hotels, conference centre and other services and amenities, the new facility will accommodate the relocation of the existing 600 slot machines and 75 gaming tables from the Edgewater Casino presently located at the former Expo site on False Creek.
