JCJ was retained by the internationally renowned, Singapore-based Genting Group to create Resorts World Casino New York City, their first project in the United States and the first casino in New York City.  Located in Queens on the site of the legendary Aqueduct Racetrack, this unique project serves as a prime example of JCJ’s ability to transform an existing property into something new and spectacular.

This facility provides more than 1,000,000 square feet of entertainment on multiple levels, providing 5,500 machines for all levels of play with three distinct, themed casinos: Times Square, Fifth Avenue and the members-only Crockford’s Club. Twelve restaurants and six lounges offer everything from upscale fine dining to casual New York favorites. The facility features live entertainment at the 360 Bar and the “Central Park” conference and event center provides the largest event space in all five boroughs.

JCJ provided guidance on complex regulatory issues and worked with officials and agencies including the New York Port Authority, State and City of New York, New York State Lottery and the New York Racing Authority. 

Opened in October of 2011 to wide acclaim, Resorts World Casino New York City has been recognized as the “Top Slot Revenue Generator in the United States.” In 2012, Resorts World Casino New York brought in a record of nearly $700M in revenue and attracted 10 million visitors.  The property has re-invigorated the surrounding community by providing more than 1,500 jobs in addition to the tremendous tax revenue generated for the State.
