Waterfront casino launches in Philadelphia


Courier-Post,  Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 10:16:03 AM

Small wonder the logo for SugarHouse Casino on North Delaware Avenue features three lucky sevens on the Ben Franklin Bridge.

With the casino's opening Thursday, management wants to lure gamblers from the tri-state area into Philadelphia's first casino with the slogan: Philly Loves a Winner.

Located a mile north of the bridge in the city's Fishtown neighborhood, the ultramodern, $390 million venue expects to take another bite out of Atlantic City, which already is bleeding billions from mounting competition.

'Topping off' ceremony held for SugarHouse casino


Philly.com,  Saturday, May 15, 2010 at 10:15:54 AM

The final steel beam of the SugarHouse Casino, Philadelphia's first gaming hall, was mounted in place Friday on the 22-acre site straddling Fishtown and Northern Liberties on Columbus Boulevard.

The "topping" ceremony, which brought the casino one step closer to its projected opening in mid-September, was part of a union ritual bestowing good luck and good fortune upon a completed infrastructure for SugarHouse, a 60,000-square-foot building that will eventually employ hundreds of casino workers.

But it took much more than luck to bring the casino into existence, said Wendy Hamilton, the project's general manager. SugarHouse was granted one of two casino licenses in Philadelphia in 2006 and has been met by opposition from neighbors who fear increased traffic and crime once it opens.

Delays mire SugarHouse casino plan


Philadelphia Inquirer,  Sunday, January 11, 2009 at 1:11:15 PM

The Web site for SugarHouse Casino has a video feed from its 22-acre site on North Delaware Avenue, showing crews removing rubble and driving piles.

The scene looks busy. But, the project's investors complain, they are no closer to breaking ground for a foundation than they were exactly a year ago, when the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board issued the casino's license.

As of today, the partners have missed a state deadline to have 1,500 slot machines up and running. They are asking the board for a one-year extension, with no guarantee they will get one over mounting objections.
