Casino Developer: Extend Streetcar to Broadway Commons

Posted on Updated on

The Enquirer is reporting that the developer of the proposed casino at Broadway Commons would like the Cincinnati Streetcar extended serve the new venture:

But to their credit, the Rock Ventures group, which will back the Cincinnati and Cleveland casinos, aims to design its facilities to connect with the neighborhood. They pledge not to build on-site hotels to keep customers “captive,” but actually work with downtown hotels, restaurants and other venues. They’re willing to discuss a link to the Broadway Commons casino from a proposed downtown streetcar line, should that project eventually get under way.

In addition to creating new economic development all along the line, the Cincinnati Streetcar will also increase the functionality of our existing assets.  Business will have access to new customers riding the streetcar.  Parking garages that are farther away from the final destination than people are willing to walk can now be used, with a streetcar taking the patrons the last mile.  Hotels will have a larger range of attractions that are accessible without needing a car.  Support Our City–Build the Streetcar

    So does CincyStreetcar supports a casino on Broadway Commons? If so that’s disappointing…

    I don’t think CincyStreetcar Blog is taking a side on the casino issue. He’s just stating that the casino developer sees the value in a Streetcar system and its ability to connect our residents with both existing and new destinations.
