Hard Rock Casino Ottawa eyes alternative construction site

Hard Rock Casino Ottawa is one of the gaming expansion projects ready to transform the region and enhance its offerings. Recently the gaming corporation announced its new plan for development in the Rideau Carleton Casino area and this time the new complex would be placed on the south side of the casino location. This position calls for a four-lane extension of Earl Armstrong Road.

As it often happens in life, plans rarely remain unchanged throughout the years and Hard Rock Casino Ottawa has been subjected to several changes throughout the years. The CA$318-million project was originally supposed to be built on the north side of the Rideau Carleton Casino currently operating in the area. Exactly two years ago, this was the plan pitched to the local officials.

Expansion South of Rideau Carleton

However, now it is time for a change, as Hard Rock Casino Ottawa would like to see its expansion on the south side. Such a move includes the construction of a well-rounded casino venue, in addition to more family-friendly offerings to the likes of a 1,600-seat theatre for live events, dining offerings, as well as a hotel tower with 178 rooms available for booking.

The original plan for action meant that the gambling and entertainment complex overseen by Hard Rock would face Albion Road, easing up the access to the location. Now it has become clear that the complex would have to be connected with Earl Armstrong Road. This introduces a change of plans for the City Council, as Ottawa was not planning to work in this particular area of the road in the upcoming ten years.
