It was a very special day for Suffolk OTB & Jake’s 58!!!
All the hard work, planning, and anticipation led up to our Groundbreaking Ceremony this morning on the big expansion of our Jake’s 58 Casino Hotel. It served as a kickoff to the 300,000 square foot, $210 million expansion project!
In the coming months, Jake’s 58 will undergo significant growth and construction to accommodate an additional 1000 video lottery terminals and improve its amenities. Officials say this project will employ more than 800 union construction workers and an additional 125 permanent jobs once the expansion is completed.
Expect to see an increase in the size of the property, increased gaming space, a convention center, an ultra lounge with an outdoor terrace, a boutique gift shop, a sports bar and grill, new food and beverage additions, and a multi-level parking garage and parking lots to accommodate about 2,000 parking spaces.
Jake’s 58 Casino Hotel expansion will be one of the largest economic development projects in the region. Additionally, it will provide hundreds of millions of dollars in additional funding to the NYS Education Department.
