Stadium Casino, LLC (a joint venture of The Cordish Companies and Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment) and CBL Properties recently announced plans to develop an approximately 100,000-square-foot casino and entertainment complex at CBL's Westmoreland Mall in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County, PA. The 1.2 million square-foot retail, dining and entertainment destination is located directly off Route 30, approximately 30 miles from downtown Pittsburgh.
The new casino will be located in the space currently occupied by the Bon-Ton department store, which will reportedly close in early August. The casino is projected to create more than 600 jobs and generate millions of dollars annually to the local community. The project is subject to the review and approval of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. Once approved, a construction timeline will be determined.
