Delta Casino Gets Final BC Ministry Yes Nod
Anyone who has ever had to navigate the red tape of bureaucracy will surely attest to the fact that one of the biggest challenges associated with any prominent new development; and this is regardless really of the particular industry; is the securitisation of the necessary permissions by that region’s transport and infrastructure authorities. The process leading up to the proposed development and construction of a brand new casino and entertainment venue in Delta proved to be no different, but project managers were relieved to recently report that the final approvals from BC’s Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure have now been successfully obtained.
This means that it’s all-systems-GO for the development of Gateway Casinos and Entertainment’s new Cascades Casino Delta. The project has been a long time coming in terms of intense market impact studies and legislative planning, and now that the final permits are in place, happy days are finally on the horizon.
The new development forms part of a large-scale modernisation process currently being implemented in Ontario and British Columbia, and the community of Delta has been anxiously following the selection process over the course of the last number of months, eager to ensure that the venue is in fact coming home to Delta.
More Than Just Games
The new development will not only offer gambling and gaming services, but will also include a variety of other entertainment offerings and products, as well as some signature eateries, so as to ensure that there’s something on offer for everyone.
Great care was applied when market surveys were initially performed due to the fact that visitors frequenting the venue will not be required to gamble in order to enjoy the rest of the amenities. The market research indicated that there was indeed a lot of interest in the casino’s offerings. This is a very important focus area for any new casino-driven entertainment development. Diversity in terms of offerings are structured around whatever the outcome of the surveys typically employed during the initial market research.
Looking Ahead To 2020
In addition to the top-class eateries and the casino, the development will also include a five-story hotel building that will offer accommodation to visitors from out of town. The casino venue itself will consist of 500 slot machines and 24 table games.
The venue’s official opening has been tentatively scheduled for 2020, but no official opening date has been announced as of yet.
