Urban Engineers Breaks Ground with SugarHouse Casino
SugarHouse Casino has broken ground on a $164 million facility expansion that includes a seven-story garage, more food and beverage outlets facing the Delaware Riverfront, an expanded promenade, and a new bike trail. SugarHouse Casino became Philadelphia’s first casino when it opened their interim facility in September 2010. The expansion, expected to open next year, will more than double SugarHouse’s size to approximately 260,000 square feet, not including the parking garage.
Urban Engineers (Urban) was the civil and waterfront structural designer for the original $500 million facility. For the expansion, Urban is designing the site and land development aspects of the project, including parking lot improvements, bike path design, and upgrades to the Combined Sewer Outfalls north and south of the Casino to increase stormwater capacity and aid in reducing chronic flooding in neighboring communities.
