TORONTO, ONT. (WIVB) - Plans for a $3 billion Toronto casino- convention center project were unveiled in Toronto Friday morning.
The Oxford Properties Group is working on a project that would redevelop the current Toronto Convention Center on Front Street and lay a casino down in the heart of the city.
The plan needs city approval but would reportedly not involve any city or provincial funding.
The Toronto Star reports that the casino would take up less than 10 percent of the project which would encompass 16 acres in all.
Other casino developers including MGM and Caesar's World are also trying to get a foothold in the future Toronto gambling market.
