$40 Million Expansion Underway
Empire City broke ground on a $40 Million expansion on July 26 that is expected to produce more than 200 new construction jobs and 100 permanent jobs at Yonkers’ largest employer and New York's most successful racino. The 66,000 square-foot space, which was part of the original casino construction approvals issued by the New York State Lottery and the New York State Racing and Wagering Board in 2006, will provide 30,000 square feet of additional gaming space, 20,000 square feet of food and beverage facility space, 6,000 square feet for a new casino entrance, and 10,000 square feet of office and administrative related space. The expansion will allow Empire City to reconfigure its current gaming layout, relocating 350 of its existing 5,310 slot machines while introducing 400 new electronic table gaming seats for its customers. This new space will significantly enhance the gaming and entertainment experience for patrons, and the new casino entrance will include a high-tech porte-cochère that will not only enhance the architecture of the structure but also provide necessary protections for guests during inclement weather. Completion of the addition is expected in early 2012.
