Sheraton May Join Cascades Casino North Bay
If all were to go according to plan, the community of North Bay will eventually become the new home of not only the under-construction Cascades Casino North Bay, but also of a 120-room Four Points by Sheraton hotel right next door. Plans surrounding the construction of the new hotel tower were a little over a week ago revealed by the Chief Risk Officer for BVD Petroleum, Gagandeep Dhinsa.
The premium accommodation will of course ensure that all those who come to play at and be entertained by the future home of gaming in North Bay, will be at liberty to enjoy all of the premium luxury-quality accommodation that the Sheraton hotel group has become uber-famous for. Not only will top-class accommodation ensure that folks stick around for longer enjoying all that North Bay’s future entertainment hub has to offer, but the construction process through eventual support staff employment will ensure that at least 50 new jobs are created in the local job market.
Construction To Resume Shortly
Cascades Casino North Bay is of course currently still in its construction phase – mostly due to delays caused by a combination of early regulatory hiccups and current holds on construction for public health and safety reasons. Once current restrictions are lifted, which may if all goes according to plan, be as early as from May 19 and onwards, construction will hopefully be in a position to continue without any further hinderances or obstacles in the way of the progress.
The casino itself was initially projected as nearing finalisation by the second half of this year. Construction commenced already in May last year. Various delays have however now caused an extension to the projected finishing date. The 39,000 square-feet development is expected to provide jobs to as many as 300 local North Bay residents. The project includes the casino itself, as well as several family-friendly offerings for everyone’s enjoyment.
The Aim Is End Of 2020
Permission to construct the Four Points by Sheraton hotel depends on several permissions and business licenses yet to be secured by the Brampton-based owners. The $15 million development will of course also only be in a position to enter into its next phase of planning once current stop-trade restrictions have been lifted.
The hope is that the construction phase will have received the green light so as to get underway by no later than the end of 2020. The majority of the required permits and licenses required will have to be obtained from the City of North Bay itself.
