As Finance Committee held a public hearing Tuesday on the proposed zoning bylaw changes that would accommodate a slots parlor at 300 Ames Pond Drive in Tewksbury, Penn National Gaming released the first renderings of what the facility could look like.
The facility would be approximately 125,000 square-feet, with 65,000 square-feet. of which would be used for gaming, food and beverage and other amenities that have yet to be announced, according to a release from Penn National.
Check out the images attached to this post for a look at the rendering of the proposed Merrimack Valley Casino, casino logo and Flutie's Sports Bar logo.
Merrimack Valley Casino would also include a "Flutie's Sports Bar," thanks to a partnership between the former Boston College and New England Patriots quarterback and Penn National.
The renderings come after representatives from Penn National sought out feedback from Tewksbury residents as to what they would like the proposed slots-only casino to look like as well as what amenities they would like to see included in the facility, according to Jeff Morris, Director of Public Affairs at Penn National.
"We have spent the last three weeks asking local residents what they would like to see and the types of amenities they’d like offered at Merrimack Valley Casino,” Morris said. "We are excited to bring their recommendations to life in a design that fits the town and Merrimack Valley."
More amenities for the proposed facility will be announced in the coming days, according to the release.
"We are equally excited to partner with Mr. Flutie in the first of a number of amenities to be included at the facility," Morris said.
