Muss Development, the folks behind the commercial conversion at 345 Adams Street, has teamed up with Foxwoods Resort Casino to build a casino and hotel in Liberty, N.Y. The Commercial Observer covered the news this week, and reports that the project will cost up to $600 million and span over 500 acres. This Wednesday Governor Cuomo introduced legislation to authorize three resort casinos in Upstate New York; members of the state legislature proposed more than one casino development for the Catskills in particular. Cuomo’s proposal is up for a vote this November. As Foxwoods President and CEO Scott Butera said in a press release regarding this project, “For the Catskills to realize all the economic benefits of a true gaming destination, more than one resort casino should be allowed to operate there. We will continue to work with the Governor’s office and members of the Legislature to make it happen.” Once Muss and Foxwoods have state and local approvals in place, the site could be ready for construction in a matter of months.
