Holland Casino still looking for a new location in Utrecht
Date: 03-01-2017 | Posted in: News
Holland Casino Utrecht likes to make a good start in 2017 with a new location on Kanaleneiland. However, it’s quite a challenge at the moment. At first the casino wanted to renovate it’s own building. However, the municipality decided that this plan wasn’t sufficient enough. This is why Holland Casino is currently looking for a new location in Utrecht.
Renovations station area
In the past year the station era and the ‘Jaarbeurs’ in Utrecht have changed a lot. Holland Casino has to adjust to these renovations. It seemed that the casino would be located in the Jaarbeurs or next to a big cinema. However, negotiations between the casino and the Jaarbeurs were not successful. Another location at the Overste den Oudenlaan is also not possible anymore.
Kanaleneiland as a new location
Despite the difficulties, the Utrecht municipality likes to have a Holland Casino in the city. About 400 people work over there, so it’s an economically important place. It’s also a major attraction for tourists. This is why the casino and Utrecht work hard to find a good location. Currently the Winthontlaan in Kanaleneiland seems to be the best option.
