The Cordish Companies developing $150m Live! Casino near Pittsburgh
The Cordish Companies started construction on a $150m Live! Casino project located 30 miles from downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The 100,000 sq ft facility will be part of the larger 1.3 million sq ft Westmoreland Mall development. The gaming site will feature 750 slots, around 30 game tables, a Sportsbook as well as nationally-recognized restaurants and live entertainment venues. The scheme is expected to generate about 960 direct and indirect construction jobs and approximately 500 permanent new jobs for local and regional residents.
“We couldn't be more pleased to break ground on the newest Live! Casino project and expand this distinctive brand even further into Pennsylvania,” said Jon Cordish, principal at The Cordish Companies, which is also developing the Live! Casino & Hotel project in Philadelphia. “We are a family-owned company that is deeply committed to treating our guests like family, so we're going to ensure that everything our guests have come to love about Live! Casino — first-class service, friendly atmosphere and exciting environment — is reflected in this new, unique gaming, dining and entertainment destination in Westmoreland County.”
