The Mississippi Coast Entertainment project involves the development of a massive casino/ hotel resort on and around the downtown Gulfport Waterfront. The project’s location is at the intersection of routes 90 and 49, the major east-west and north-south access points to downtown Gulfport. Furthermore, the location is at the foot of two harbors, giving it a truly premier location, while remaining accessible to Interstate 10, the largest thoroughfare in southern Mississippi.
This project will create around 1,800 jobs after delivering up to $66 million in EB-5 capital raised from 132 investors. The casino will be a state-of-the-art gaming and hospitality venue consisting of 176,000 square feet of usable space. Of that, close to 50,000 square feet will be made up of gaming space which will include 1,088 of the latest slot product, 27 table games as well as a poker room. Inside the elaborate glass structure, there will be four different dining options including a 70 seat sports bar to watch your favorite games and events as well as a 250 seat buffet. In addition, the resort will feature a 244 seat harbor side restaurant which will have exceptional views of the gulf and all the various boats and yachts coming in and out of the harbor. We will also have a food court with 150 seats as well as a coffee kiosk. The total project cost is approximately $139 million.
