Link recently began construction on the new Florida City casino. The project sits on eight of the thirty eight acres that will eventually be developed by Kings Court Key, an affiliate of Hialeah Park. The project designed by Beame Architects includes site improvements, a Sprung Tent Structure to house a Jai Alai Court and a separate, modular building which will serve as its Poker Room. Completion of Phase 1 is scheduled for June 2017.
When completed, the project will be one more destination activity which will attract visitors to South Miami-Dade County. Phase 1 is estimated to provide 89 jobs.
Florida City Mayor Otis Wallace sees this as “a catalyst for further development of other businesses and just one more destination to draw visitors.”
