Mohegan Sun has expanded and revised nearly every aspect of its Palmer casino resort proposal, including now the look of the buildings, which have grown more distinct and angular, reminiscent of the architecture of Mohegan’s flagship gambling resort in Connecticut.

Mohegan Sun released new renderings of the project Monday evening, timed to coincide with a briefing on the development plans for the Palmer Town Council.


The gambling resort project is now expected to cost nearly $1 billion, with the recent additions of a retail shopping component, a second hotel and a water park, to be developed in a partnership with Finard Properties.

Mohegan Sun is in a three-way battle for the sole Western Massachusetts casino resort license. The other contenders are MGM, which is proposing a gambling resort in the South End neighborhood of downtown Springfield, and Hard Rock International, which is proposing a casino on the Big E fairgrounds in West Springfield.
