Overview Of Stadium Casino

Stadium Casino is expected to be the eventual name of the casino that is currently being built in the “stadium” area of south Philadelphia near Lincoln Financial field, Citizens Bank Park, and Wells Fargo Center. The development partners behind the new casino are the Cordish Company (owners of Xfinity Live! and Maryland Live!) and Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment Group, (owners of Parx Casino) who originally intended to name the new casino Philly Live!, (keying off Cordish’s famous “Live!” brand), but seem to have changed their minds, settling on the less exclamatory name of Stadium Casino.

Here’s a rundown of what we know (and can guess) about the new gaming venture.

  • Location – 900 Packer Ave. (at the corner of Packer Avenue and Darien Street), on the former site of a Holiday Inn.
  • Completion Date – Expected to open sometime in 2020.
  • Estimated cost – $600 million
  • Casino – Will be open 24/7 and operate as a full, Vegas-style gaming complex.
  • Gaming – 2,000 slot machines, 125 table games, and 33 poker tables.
  • Project size – 200,000 square feet for the gaming facility, plus a 220-room hotel.
  • Hotel – Described as a “boutique” hotel with a pool, spa, and fitness facilities.
  • Theme – According to Cordish Company, “A world-class hotel-casino that will complement the existing stadium district venues to create a destination like none other in the country.”
  • Restaurants – There will be six of them, ranging from “high-end options to a modern diner concept, a food court and a celebrity chef concept.”
