POMPANO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Cordish Companies and Eldorado Resorts, Inc. announced today their formalization of a new 50-50 joint venture partnership that will master plan, design and develop a new world-class, mixed-use entertainment and hospitality destination in Pompano, FL.

Together we are committed to delivering a unique mixed-use development that creates thousands of new jobs for the City of Pompano and South Florida, provides new amenities and attractions to the local population and attracts substantial new visitation to the region. I plan personally to spend significant time on the ground working to bring the development to fruition.”

“The Cordish Companies is one of the leading developers of high-profile, mixed-use destinations in the country and has a level of expertise that is unmatched,” stated Gary Carano, CEO of Eldorado Resorts, Inc. “This development is an incredible opportunity to complement our existing gaming and racing facilities on the site and will become a vibrant destination for visitors to South Florida.”
