Casino jobs build-up begins
9:40 PM, Jun. 27, 2011
DOWNTOWN – Workers are back on site constructing Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, the first of an estimated 2,000 workers it will take to complete the sprawling gambling hall.
But all 2,000 will never be working at once, and few will be employed for the duration of the 20-month project. Construction officials say on-site employment will peak next year when the site will be teeming with as many as 350 workers completing exterior and interior work. Some jobs will last months, they say, but some specialized work will be completed in only weeks.September 14, 2011 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #327898

Reimagining the Downtown Casino
EMILY BADGEROCT 27, 20111 COMMENT
Casinos are generally designed to lure people inside and then keep them there. The exit is always harder to find than the entrance. You have to walk through the slot machines to get to the bar. Everything you need – a bed, breakfast, the ATM – is within one structure, and it’s hard to see outside even if you wanted to. For all these reasons, casinos don’t make for great urban neighbors.
