RICHMOND, Va. -- The city has chosen its preferred site for a resort casino. Urban One’s pitch to develop a $600 million, 300,000-square-foot casino on the Southside at 2001 Walmsley Blvd. has been chosen by the city’s Resort Casino Evaluation Panel as its preferred proposal, Mayor Levar Stoney’s office announced Thursday. The ultimate decision of whether or not the casino gets built is now in the hands of city residents, who will vote on whether to grant a casino license through a referendum on Nov. 2, 2021.
