Forest City Enterprises unveils mixed-use casino-commercial-residential complex
Two articles on the unveiling of plans from Forest City Enterprises and Harrah's Entertainment:
Station Square proposal offers millions for tourism, nothing for arena
Giant Harrah's unveils plan for Station Square casino complex
Forest City Enterprises, the mothership of the Bruce Ratner-run subsidiary, is partnering with Harrah's Entertainment to vie for a coveted casino operating license by proposing a large mixed-use casino-retail-residential complex at Station Square in Pittsburgh.
Unlike competing bids, the Ratner-Harrah's bid makes no provision for millions of dollars to build a new downtown sports arena. Instead, they are banking on the boldness of their project and investment and support from local sports celebs and politicos.
