Aqueduct plan presented to CB10

From the Times Ledger:

Aside from some 7,500 VLTs, Sultemeier said the first phase of the project will feature several lounges, a signature bar, cabaret lounge, buffet, food court, Italian restaurant, noodle bar, bakery and a New York−style deli.

He said the $250 million project will bring in 1,000 permanent jobs to Aqueduct and 1,100 construction jobs.

Future development may include a 300− to 500−room luxury hotel, 3,000− to 5,000−square−foot spa, retail shops, additional restaurants, a 3,000−seat event center and a conference center, Sultemeier said.

He said the company is also planning to connect the facility to the nearby A train, which has a one−way stop at Aqueduct. Sultemeier said Delaware North is lobbying the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in an effort to add more year−round stops on the line and to make the stops two−way.
