Muss Development, the Queens-based developer, has partnered with Foxwoods Resort Casino to deliver a 500-acre resort-style casino to Liberty, N.Y., the companies said. This comes in the wake of Governor Andrew Cuomo introducing legislation to authorize three casino resorts upstate, including one in the Catskills.

The project itself could cost between $300 million and $600 million. It would be located next to the former Grossinger’s Hotel. Muss had been in talks with potential casino operators to develop a resort at this site, as previously reported.

The site could be ready for construction in months, pending state and local approvals.

Several state legislature members have even proposed bringing more than one casino to the Catskills, according to the Foxwoods and Muss release, first reported by the New York Observer.

“For the Catskills to realize all the economic benefits of a true gaming destination, more than one resort casino should be allowed to operate there,” the release said. “We will continue to work with the Governor’s office and members of the legislature to make it happen.” [NYO]Zachary Kussin
