Gateway Casinos & Entertainment (Gateway) has announced plans to build a new casino and entertainment property in Delta, which will feature an exciting mix of amenities including signature food and beverage brands.
Gateway has secured development lands at the Delta Town and Country Inn for the proposed project, which will bring up to 700 new jobs and an estimated $70 million investment to the Delta economy. In addition to this long-term investment, the project will result in 500 person-years of construction employment
After being selected by BCLC as the preferred host local government for a potential new gaming and entertainment facility in the South of the Fraser region, the Corporation of Delta provided clear feedback that the only suitable site on which it would consider a gaming and entertainment facility at this time is the Delta Town and Country Inn.
BCLC has provided preliminary approval of this location as the site for a proposed casino and entertainment venue in Delta.
“We are very proud to be making this commitment to Delta, where we will work together to create jobs and invest in the Delta economy through this new local entertainment destination,” said Tony Santo, CEO of Gateway Casinos & Entertainment. “With our $70 million investment, the proposed Delta casino and entertainment property will bring new and exciting gaming, dining and entertainment options to this rapidly growing community.”
Gateway’s development team will work to create a proposal for review by BCLC. Once approved, Gateway and BCLC will work collaboratively to engage with stakeholders and the public to receive feedback and answer questions about the proposed plans, which will then go before the Corporation of Delta for its consideration.
Gateway will celebrate 25 years in the business of entertainment this October. The announcement of the proposed Delta project is the centerpiece in a series of investments Gateway is making in local economies. Other recent announcements include the $15 million renovation at Grand Villa Casino Burnaby, Gateway’s flagship property, that will bring up to 75 new jobs to the Burnaby economy and see the introduction of two new signature dining options – Atlas Steak + Fish and CHOW Lucky Noodle Bar.
