Plan unveiled for Suffolk Downs casino

Developers want $1b ‘urban oasis’ at racetrack site

Developers proposing a Suffolk Downs casino offered the first public glimpse of their “urban oasis’’ Tuesday, outlining the broad concepts behind a billion-dollar reinvention of the Depression-era racetrack into a luxury gambling resort under the Caesars Entertainment brand.

Plans would retain thoroughbred racing at the site, which straddles East Boston and Revere; remodel the existing grandstands; and add a 300-room hotel and up to 10 restaurants, entertainment venues, retail shops and a spa, and 200,000 square feet of slot machines and Las Vegas-style table games.
