Day One, Round Two had The Provence team’s proposal for Broad and Callowhill streets before the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
The team, called Tower Entertainment, is led by local developer Bart Blatstein of Tower Investments. The casino and entertainment complex would be operated by Isle of Capri Casinos, which operates 16 casinos in seven states, including Nemacolin in Pennsylvania. They are kicking things off with a video presentation prominently featuring Blatstein. “For me, it’s much more than a casino,” he says in the video, touting the jazz club, swim club, fitness club and botanical gardens. “It will be a great shot in the arm to North Broad street.”
