Construction on a new, permanent Seneca Nation casino in downtown Buffalo is now underway.
The Senecas had originally planned a large-scale, $333 million casino/hotel complex for the site. But when the recession hit in 2008, those plans were put on hold.
Earlier this year, the tribe unveiled planned for a smaller facility that will occupy nearly ten acres, with a price tag of $130 million. It will include a restaurant, a bar, and a four-level parking garage.
