Suffolk Downs bigwigs this morning rolled out long-awaited plans for what they called "a Mecca for entertainment and gaming"—200,000 square feet of gaming space with thousands of slots and 200 table games, a 300-room hotel, nightclubs and 10 restaurants. Caesars Entertainment is partnering with the track.
Architect David Manfredi used phrases like "urban piazza" and "urban oasis" to describe the look of the resort.
The track plans a grandstand and clubhouse that is "reinvented" and "reimagined." Execs also plan a future second hotel.
Overall, the project amounts to a $1 billion investment, officials said.
