What's Happening in:  Stadium District 

Master plan approved for Live! Hotel and Casino

The plans for the Live! Hotel and Casino at 900 Packer Ave. are continuing to move forward.

The City Planning Commission approved the master plan for the casino on Tuesday, but the project still will require for the site to be rezoned.

More from PlanPhilly:

The Commission’s approval was a necessary step toward getting the city’s second casino built. City Council will also have to approve the project with a bill rezoning the site, at 10th and Packer, to a special gaming district. The state has the power to grant gaming licenses in Philadelphia, and zoning legislation is the city’s only leverage in siting a second casino.

That zoning classification, SP-ENT, carries its own requirements for open space and limits on signage. The developers, Cordish Companies, have put forth a master plan that doesn’t conform to some of those requirements, so Council will have to decide whether to enact additional changes to the underlying zoning as well.
