City of Entertainment






The “City of Entertainment,” located in a major urban area in North America, will serve as a regional destination for gaming and racing, conferences, events, shopping and overnight stays.  JCJ worked closely with the owner of the existing, under-utilized gaming and racing venue to develop a master plan for the 100 acre property.  The easily accessible site sits adjacent to a major highway and is serviced by a well-developed public transportation network.  The property has a rich history and provides an ideal location for an entertainment-oriented development in a vibrant urban environment, surrounded by millions of potential patrons. 

The resulting master plan includes 85,000 square feet of new gaming space, six casual and fine dining opportunities, three new bars, a night club, 400 high-rise hotel rooms with a sky lobby, 35,000 square feet of new conference space, 250,000 square feet of new retail tenant space, an 8,000 seat arena for professional and college sports, concerts, conventions and other events, and structured parking for over 12,000 cars.  The master plan is designed to maximize the site’s potential and appeal to a wide spectrum of guests.
