PHILADELPHIA | Live! Hotel & Casino | 215 FT | 13 FLOORS

Title: Live! Hotel & Casino
Project: Casino, Hotel, Restaurant, Nightlife
Architect: BLTa
Developer: Cordish Companies and Greenwood Racing & Entertainment
Location: 10th and Packer Ave. Philadelphia, PA
Neighborhood: Sports Complex
District: South Philadelphia
Floors: 13 floors
Height: 215 feet

The Live! Hotel and Casino planned for Packer Avenue includes 2,150 slot machines and 100 electronic table games, along with 12 high-limit tables, and 80 high-limit slots. There is also a planned “Asian Pit,” an area that gets its name from its designation for games frequented by persons from Asian countries or backgrounds.

The “Pit” is housed within a 600,000-plus square foot hotel and gaming complex — previous reports have the scale at 200,000 square feet for the casino and the same for the hotel, 400,000 — with an additional one million-plus square feet of parking space in a seven-tiered garage. On top of the garage will be a rooftop green space with 35,000 square feet for 400 occupants, 75 percent of which will be covered with at least 12 inches of soil (and presumably planted with grass).

Details have been scarce on the Cordish Companies/Greenwood Racing and Entertainment joint venture coming to South Philly sometime in 2018-2019.

The project is planned for a 9-acre parcel at Darien Street and Packer Avenue in South Philly – right now there is still a 12-story Holiday Inn and surface parking lot at the site that are both scheduled for demolition.

In their place, according to the plans, there’s to be an 18-floor, 300,000 square foot hotel; an 8-story, 325,000 square foot casino and “parking garage pedestal” (attached building and elevator housing), and seven tiers of structured parking built over the casino floor with about 1.3 million square feet of surface area (total garage parking provided: 3,551 spaces).

On the second floor of the hotel will be a spa, and on the Penthouse level, along with suites, there will be “private gaming areas.”
