Just Another Day In SouthLA
The new Hollywood Park Casino is nearing completion. The newly built Hollywood Park Casino will open this Fall and is expected to generate $2 million a year in city taxes. A dramatic glass entrance, similar to a Vegas style casino, dubbed the Cary Grant Pavilion will span 110,000 square feet and host 125 card game tables, simulcast wagering, a sports bar and restaurant (Century Bar & Grill), intimate lounge, gourmet café, and a 20 percent increase in high limit play. The new casino will have a sports lounge for card players and visitors to watch sporting events, larger game rooms and a multi level parking garage steps away from the entrance. This project is just one of numerous new business set to come in the only part of Inglewood being revitalized. I strongly hope that this development ties into the existing and community and other than widening century blvd for the Football games, I hope Mayor Butts has more beautification projects planned for the area.
The old casino will stay open until the new one opens this fall. An official grand opening is set for late October but doors of the gray one-story 110,000-square-foot building fronting Century Boulevard near Prairie Avenue will likely open earlier.
