The Schoolfield site along West Main Street has plenty of room for a casino resort, according to officials.
“The Schoolfield development site is more than 77 acres and provides ample room and space to develop the Caesars Virginia resort with a full complement of amenities,” said David Rittvo, vice president of development for Caesars Entertainment in Paradise, Nevada.
The company’s preliminary site plan prepared during the RFP process (the city’s request for proposals for a casino) showed that the site would be able to accommodate not only the casino, but the hotel, meeting and conference space, 2,500-seat live entertainment venue and plenty of parking for employees and guests, Rittvo said.
But the company is not sure where the casino would be located on the site. Caesars officials will know where they would build it after city voters decide on Nov. 3 whether to approve the casino.
