Rivers Casino Pittsburgh has confirmed that they are to build a $60 million North Shore hotel later this summer.
Revealing the plans for a new hotel, the casino said that the seven-story, four-star property would be called “The Landing Hotel Pittsburgh.”
The Hotel will feature 219 guest rooms and will be attached to the existing casino on the east facade, facing the Carnegie Science Center.
The casino had already received approval for a hotel from the Pittsburgh Planning Commission in 2017.
The development was postponed following the approval of gaming legislation that added category 4 “mini-casinos” and reshaped the Pennsylvania casino landscape.
Greg Carlin, CEO of Rush Street Gaming and Rivers Casino Pittsburgh said that “Statewide gaming expansion changed our schedule, but never our intentions. Rush Street always envisioned a hotel for Rivers to create a full-service destination on the North Shore. We see it as a natural evolution.”
In a statement released to the press, Carlin said that the new Hotel is expected to take 18 months to complete and would be welcoming guests in 2021.
Apart from the guest rooms, the Hotel will also feature ten luxury terrace suites, each with private first-floor patios.
The entire development project is expected to cost around $60 million. The project will be developed with funds from private investors.
