Hollywood Casino topic of Thursday’s talk in East Toledo
The $250 million casino has created 2,100 temporary construction jobs and will employ 1,200 once it opens. At least 90 percent of the permanent jobs are designated for residents of the Toledo metropolitan area. General Manager Richard St. Jean told The Press that 30,000 applications were turned in for the 1,200 jobs.
A projected $25.3 million in annual tax revenue is expected to be generated for the City of Toledo, Lucas County and the county’s school districts once all four of Ohio’s authorized casinos are open. The State of Ohio will receive a $50 million license fee dedicated to workforce development programs, bringing Penn Nationals’ investment in the project to $300 million.
The 290,000 square foot casino includes structured parking on a 44-acre site in East Toledo on the banks of the Maumee River opposite downtown Toledo.
The casino’s art deco architectural design is visible from Interstate 75, and the casino can be reached via the Miami Street exit. The gambling complex will be adjacent to the Libbey-Owens-Ford/Pilkington industrial complex at the Toledo-Rossford border.
The casino is expected to open later this year.
