When word of a casino in South Philly was going around, many expected a location just to the north of Citizens Bank Park. The Navy Yard just south of the Sports Complex has already experienced a rapid growth of short buildings with interesting designs, so that is where a casino was anticipated. Instead, the Live! Casino and Hotel at 900 Packer Avenue is plopped on the parcel near the stadiums, in an area that hasn’t experienced new mass since 2004 when Citizens Bank Park opened. The new casino will take up a whole lot as well as the former site of the Holiday Inn, and will consist of a three story-casino, a 215-room hotel, and a parking garage to the south.
