Proposed Binghamton Casino Site is Revealed

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

Two Binghamton brothers who have expressed interest in developing a casino resort in the Southern Tier are finally revealing details of their plans.

While Tioga Downs and Traditions at the Glen have been actively campaigning to gain support for the award of a gaming license, little has been heard from Vista Hospitality Group.

Over the weekend, sketches of a planned development by Ally and Amin Visram were publicized.

The brothers, who own several hotels in the northeast, reportedly are planning to propose locating a casino resort along the Brandywine Corridor in Binghamton or at the current Binghamton Plaza site.

Vista reportedly plans to submit a $120 million bid for the development of a Binghamton casino sporting 1,500 slot machines and 50 table games.

The Brandywine site includes the former Stow Manufacturing location and parcels on Frederick and Montgomery Streets.

The site measures about 19 acres while the Binghamton Plaza parcel is said to measure about 26 acres.

The New York State Gaming Commission Casino Site Location Committee started taking applications for casino licenses on March 31st.

The application deadline is June 30th and bidders need to file a $1 million filing fee on or before April 23.
