The $600 million replacement for aging Edgewater Casino at the Plaza of Nations is well under construction and preparing to welcome gamblers, revellers and hotel guests early next year.
Parq Vancouver is adjacent to BC Place Stadium and will feature 600 slot machines and 75 table games spread over 75,000 sq ft., making it the largest casino in Western Canada when it opens in early 2017.
There will also be five restaurants, three bars and lounges, event and conference space, gym, spa, cafe and two brand new hotels.
The Trump International Hotel and Tower is nearing completion in Vancouver. The 69 storey, $360 million tower is scheduled to open this summer, and will be the second-tallest building in Vancouver after the Shangri-La Hotel across the street.
The building was designed by Arthur Erickson and gradually twists at a 45 degree from bottom to top. Trump Tower will feature a 147-room hotel on the first 15 floors of the building, topped by 238 condos.
