Ottawa City Council has approved Hard Rock Casino Ottawa’s plans to expand the Rideau Carleton Raceway and Slots.

The $318-million project includes a redevelopment of the Rideau Carleton Raceway at 4837 Albion Rd.. The casino plans to build an entertainment venue that would include a 2,500-seat theatre for live shows, restaurants, a nine-story hotel and a parking garage for up to 1,200 cars.

The investment is expected to create approximately 3,100 construction jobs and close to 900 permanent jobs, up from the current 400.

The multi-year project is scheduled to be complete by 2022.
