JCJ Architecture completed the first phase of the 1,086,000-sf Resorts World Casino New York City in Queens, N.Y., the largest entertainment center in New York City's metro area and the city's only casino. Developed and operated by Malaysian-based Genting Group, the project is the first company-owned U.S. venture for the leading global leisure and hospitality corporation.

The complex, located within the Aqueduct Racetrack complex, will contribute approximately $350 million annually to the State of New York to support education while offering locals and tourists alike world-class gaming, dining and entertainment options.

Adding 1,200 new construction jobs with a total construction cost of $510 million, the three-level complex required extensive site redevelopment and improvements on 64 acres, renovation of existing facilities, and new construction totaling approximately 736,000-sf.

JCJ Architecture served as architect and interior design firm for the project. The project team included professionals from across JCJ's network of offices, led by senior executives from JCJ including Bill Dow, Brian Davis, Scott Celella, Alexandra Lopatynsky, Jeff Wynkoop and Peter Fabian.  Tutor Perini served as construction manager.
