Pittsburgh's casino may still be majestic, but that won't be reflected in its name.
The new preliminary name presented to the city Planning Commission Tuesday by representatives of casino developer Holdings Acquisition Co. L.P. is "Rivers Casino."
"We selected the name because it reflects the integral role the rivers have had in shaping Pittsburgh's history and character," spokesman Dan Fee said in a statement. "We believe our location and development along the Ohio River is as unique as Pittsburgh."
Majestic Star was awarded the contract to build a casino on Pittsburgh's North Shore in December 2006, but Don Barden, the company chairman and CEO, defaulted on a $200 million bridge loan in July and failed to pay contractors.
