MGM Selects Architectural Firm To Help With $925 Million Maryland Casino Project

New Casino Is Expected To Open In July 2016


MGM, which won the right to build a brand new casino complex in Prince George’s County, Maryland, recently announced that it has selected a project manager for the development.

It named McKissack & McKissack, which is an architectural, engineering and construction management firm. The entire project comes at a price tag of $925 million.

“McKissack & McKissack represents the best of the best of their industry and we are proud to add them to our team,” MGM National Harbor said in a statement. “Their experience managing some of the metropolitan area’s most impressive undertakings made them the clear choice to oversee our multidimensional National Harbor construction and development.”

The waterfront development on the shores of the Potomac River in Prince George’s County sits just south of Washington, D.C. near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. The resort will include a 300-room hotel, a casino featuring 3,600 slots and 140 table games, a 1,200-seat theater, 35,000 square feet of meeting space, among other amenities.

The casino is slated to open in the summer of 2016, according to reports.

MGM beat out Penn National Gaming for the right to build in the state.

Not long ago Maryland authorized table games, so expect a MGM National Harbor poker room.
