NORFOLK, Va. (WTKR)- We are just a little bit closer to a casino in Norfolk becoming a reality.
Construction on the HeadWaters Resort and Casino is expected to start later this year, and this week they held an event to attract workers to the project.
Spokespeople for the project tell us they expect the $500-million dollar project to transform the riverfront in downtown Norfolk.
Not only that, it’s expected to serve as a catalyst for economic growth in the area.
“This could be a huge project for us,” said Paula Proano from Alzate Building Contractors.
Dozens attended the HeadWaters Resort and Casino open house in Norfolk Tuesday.
