Mohegan Sun delivered its final application for a New York state gaming license today, proposing a $550 million resort casino on the site of the former Concord Hotel in Thompson, a Sullivan County town in the Catskills.
The facility, which would be called Mohegan Sun at the Concord, would encompass 60 acres of the 140-acre property. It would be developed by Mohegan Sun in partnership with Westchester County, N.Y., developer Louis Cappelli, who owns the property.
"We're tremendously excited to share our vision for the future of Sullivan County — a vision that features a world-class entertainment and tourism destination that will generate thousands of jobs and new economic development for the region," Mitchell Etess, the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority’s chief executive officer, said. "Just as important, Mohegan Sun at the Concord will be a unique destination with one-of-a-kind amenities that will attract a new generation of visitors to this former center of tourism in the beautiful Catskills."
Mohegan Sun delivered 20 copies of its application to the New York State Gaming Commission. Each copy comprised about 10,000 pages of documents.
Planned amenities at Mohegan Sun at the Concord include seven dining options at a variety of price points, a 252-room hotel complex, performance venues of all sizes for music, comedy and live shows and 52,000 square feet of casino space incorporating more than 2,100 gaming positions. Retail and nightlife offerings are planned as well.
