 Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg and the city of Lawrenceburg, Ind., have struck a $50 million deal to build a 235,000-square-foot convention center, an 18,000-square-foot concert hall, a 7,500-square-foot ballroom and a 180-room hotel, all to open by spring 2013. According to the deal, the city will supervise construction and supply a $25 million grant, a $14 million loan and $10 million in tax-increment financing, while the casino would add $1 million of its own funds and assume both ownership and management upon completion.
