In July, Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway broke ground on a $40 Million expansion that is expected to produce more than 200 new construction jobs and 100 permanent jobs at Yonkers' largest employer and New York's most successful racino. The expansion has been praised for creating new jobs and giving a shot in the arm to local economic development activities which will build on the Raceway's billion dollar investment in schools in Yonkers and across New York State as Yonkers' largest employer. The 66,000 square-foot space, which was part of the original casino construction approvals issued by the New York State Lottery and the New York State Racing and Wagering Board in 2006, will provide 30,000 square feet of additional gaming space, 20,000 square feet of food and beverage facility space, 6,000 square feet for a new casino entrance, and 10,000 square feet of office and administrative related space. The expansion will allow Empire City to reconfigure its current gaming layout, relocating 350 of its existing 5,310 slot machines while introducing 400 new electronic table gaming seats for its customers. This new space will significantly enhance the gaming and entertainment experience for patrons. Completion of the addition is expected in early 2012.
