As you read this, the finishing touches on construction of the luxurious Parq Vancouver Casino and hotel resort are drawing to a close. Sadly, Parq Vancouver Casino’s opening is also the day a beloved casino – Edgewater Casino closes its doors.
After much debt and relocation to the Plaza of Nations building, Edgewater Casino could no longer sustain itself. The closing also makes the last remaining buildings in the Plaza of Nations, which will now undergo a redevelopment project. Edgewater Casino is located in downtown Vancouver on False Creek, literally on the edge of the water creating a breath-taking view. The official date for closure is September 29th.
On the brighter side of the street, will be Parq Vancouver Casino and hotel resort. Parq Vancouver Casino was developed by Paragon Gaming, a Las Vegas-based company. They are well credited for the operation of Hard Rock Casino in Lake Tahoe.
Parq Vancouver Casino vs Edgewater casino
The new casino is valued at $700 million and currently stands as the largest private development throughout Western Canada. But Parq Vancouver is not positioned as just a casino; it is situated between two luxury Marriot hotels. Other attractions at the casino include eight restaurants, a 30k square feet outdoor park, ample rooftop space and a conference space housing Vancouver’s biggest hotel ballroom.
Concerned about parking? Don’t be, Parq Vancouver will have more than one thousand underground parking spaces, plus taxi pickup and car share spaces. But, if this is not to your liking, remember COC has a list of best online casinos for you to gamble on, in the comfort of your home!
The gaming floor will host 600 slot machines and is 72 thousand square feet; twice the size of Edgewater Casino. What is a fancy casino without the high-rolling table games right? Not to worry, Parq Vancouver Casino will feature 75 table games, plus 11 private gaming rooms.
For music lovers, the opening will also feature a Coldplay concert!
