Rivers Casino Pittsburgh will break ground on a $60 million hotel this summer. The seven-story, four-star Landing Hotel Pittsburgh will feature 219 guestrooms and attach to the existing casino on the east facade, facing the Carnegie Science Center.
This property will be the second location for The Landing Hotel, which opened in Schenectady, New York, in 2017 as part of Rivers Casino and Resort’s complex at Mohawk Harbor. Pittsburgh-based Massaro Construction Group will build the hotel. The hotel was designed by architect VOA. Klai Juba Wald is the executive architect for the hotel and related renovations, with planning and landscape design by the Pittsburgh office of Strada, LLC.
Rivers Casino Pittsburgh successfully completed several property upgrades, including: adding gourmet burger restaurant FLIPT; opening The Event Center for galas and expos; and launching Pittsburgh’s first licensed sportsbook. Rivers Casino Pittsburgh received approval for a hotel from the Pittsburgh Planning Commission in 2017. The development was postponed following the approval of gaming legislation that added category 4 “mini-casinos” and reshaped the Pennsylvania casino landscape.
