Caesars Entertainment has released renderings for Caesars Virginia, a $500 million resort in Danville that is expected to open by the end of the year. A Caesars Sportsbook, 500 hotel rooms, a state-of-the-art casino floor, a World Series of Poker Room, new restaurants, and entertainment options will all be available at the facility.
The resort will create over a thousand good-paying jobs, according to Anthony Carano, President and COO.
“The people of Danville have entrusted us to build a world-class resort, and we look forward to proving that trust was well founded with an incredible resort worthy of the iconic Caesars brand,” he said.
Positive impact on community
Alonzo Jones, the mayor of Danville and a co-chair of the “Caesars for Danville” campaign committee, added: “Over the course of the last two years, myself, City Council and staff have taken great care to develop plans, alongside residents and Caesars Entertainment, to create a resort that will positively impact the community through new tax revenue, jobs, partnership opportunities with local businesses and tourism dollars.
“We are confident that Caesars Virginia will honour the old Dan River Mills’ Schoolfield site and become a pillar of pride for Danville and its people.”
The project’s gaming component includes the construction of a casino with over 1,400 slot machines and table games, as well as a Caesars Sportsbook that offers best-in-class sports betting.
Caesars Virginia is set to open in late 2023, with construction beginning in December 2021.
