Leelanau Sands Casino and Hotel

Competing for one of four casino licenses in Upstate New York, Greenetrack’s proposed 600,000 sq. ft. Grand Hudson Hotel & Casino would include:

  • 3,000 slot machines, 75 gaming tables and private poker room
  • Amenities including bars, VIP room, player’s clubs, daycare, movie theaters, spa & fitness area, enclosed pool and outdoor oasis
  • 14-story, 350-key hotel tower
  • Convention Center
  • 8-level, 683,000 sq. ft. parking structure

The first step in this important project involved finding a site that could accommodate this large/complicated use, and allow for the construction to occur in an expedited manner. Wendel
set up a scoring criteria for the site’s needs, and investigated a dozen sites for potential acquisition. Based on this work, and coordination with the Owner, Real Estate Agent, Architect and various Municipalities and Agencies, a site was selected adjoining Stewart Airport. It has been reported in the press that this site is the best site of all the proposals in Orange and Sullivan Counties.
