The Firecreek Resort and Casino has submitted their public plans to the city for a conditional use permit, now available on Accela for viewing, and the plans are impressive, to say the least. You can find information below, and a gallery of screenshots from the application below that, showing elevations, renderings and site plans.
Here's a breakdown of the square footage for the project:
Total building area: 1,159,579 square feet.
Hotel (13 stories): 208,702 square feet
Casino (restaurants, bar, gaming floor): 277,851 square feet
Pool deck (outdoor, second floor): 33,721 square feet
Courtyard (outdoor, ground level): 37,275 square feet
Parking Garage (5 stories): 602,030 square feet
Building footprint: 405,900 square feet
Landscape area: 159,800 square feet
Total parking (surface and garage): 1,845 stalls
Convention space: 20,000 square feet
The project has already invested a ton of money into due diligence, including traffic studies, hydrologic analysis, drainage reports by Wood Rogers, sewer usage and capacity by Wood Rogers, and of course design and site plans. In other words, combined with their submission of plans to the city already, this project is a bit beyond vaporware, and its proposed predessesors who were going to build on this property (Station Casinos).
I dig the site plan, with the majority of surface parking facing Kietzke Lane, and not Virginia Street.
It looks like part of the casino space is dedicated to 'Stone's Gamgling Hall' which here's the web site for: https://www.stonesgamblinghall.com/
Check out this Stone's Gambling Hall in Citrus Heights that friend and substacker Alica Barber sent me. It was converted from a Salvation Army warehouse. If this is an indication of what we can expect from this property, I'm excited.
