Casino Queen move brings more competitive features - 2005-12-12 [cached]

"A boat in a moat is a casino built upon barges that literally float in a tank of water on land," said Paul Zemitzsch, Casino Queen spokesman."There is no movement, and the 'seams' between land and water are indecipherable."

The second and third phases of the project, estimated at $100 million, would include more restaurants, more hotel rooms, a new entertainment facility and a parking garage, Zemitzsch said.
Phase one is expected to get under way at the end of the first quarter of 2006, he said, and be completed by June 2007.Completion dates for phases two and three have not been estimated yet.The architect for the project is The Friedmutter Group of Las Vegas.A contractor has not been selected.
Driving the undertaking, Zemitzsch said, is the need to stay competitive with the Missouri side of the bistate market.
"Harrah's and Ameristar are already boats in a moat, and so will Pinnacle be on the St. Louis riverfront," he said.
Zemitzsch said that in the past decade, the casino, which employs about 1,150 people, has paid more than $102 million to the city of East St. Louis in gaming taxes and admission fees and an additional $9 million in property taxes.

Following the 5-0 vote Friday in Chicago, casino spokesman Paul Zemitzsch was pleased to "clear the hurdle."The three-phase project's $150 million financing plans and barge design still must be approved by the board.

"The Casino Queen team is very excited," Zemitzsch said.
Zemitzsch said that pending approval, the casino plans to break ground soon after the new year and open within 16 months.

"This has been a dream plan in the making for many years," said Casino Queen spokesman Paul Zemitzsch.

"We can take the additional revenue and invest it, and that will attract people," Paul Zemitzsch, spokesman for the Casino Queen in East St. Louis, said Wednesday.

"Not only is it the incentive of the changing water levels on the boat, but the long gangways and things that most customers in this market see as more of an obstacle," said Paul Zemitzsch, a spokesman for the Casino Queen."Obviously, anything that makes it easier and more convenient for customers is what everybody in the marketplace is looking for."

The first phase of the expansion project will include the dredging of a "moat" in the casino's parking lot southeast of the existing Crown Hotel building and the construction of a new casino with a 36,000-square-foot gambling floor. (The existing gambling floor is 25,000 square feet.) Zemitzsch estimated that the first phase of construction would cost about $50 million.
A second and third phase, projected at a total of $100 million, would add new restaurants and hotel rooms, as well as an entertainment facility and a parking garage, Zemitzsch said.New gaming stations also would be a possibility, Zemitzsch said, if the Illinois legislature agrees to lift a cap that limits casinos to 1,200 seats at gaming tables or slot machines.
