Approved: Biscayne Boulevard Casino Can Begin Operations, State Says

A casino is now fully approved to open near Midtown Miami, according to Florida Politics.

West Flagler Associates, which operates Magic City Casino, was granted a summer jai alai permit by Florida regulators yesterday.

With the permit, some gambling is now fully legal on over seven acres spanning multiple city blocks, from 2900 to 3100 Biscayne Boulevard.

The casino will include:

  • Poker
  • Jai Alai
  • Restaurants
  • Entertainment

300-350 employees are expected to be hired (in comparison, Resorts World Miami once promised to hire 19,000 if approved).

Planning for the casino will begin next week after being halted during the approval process, West Flagler’s Izzy Havenick told the website.

Crescent Heights is the owner of the properties where the casino will be built.
