@Metspolice spots some stuff about the possible Flushing casino

 Shannon over at posted this earlier today.

A website called Off Plan Property Exchange, which I am unfamiliar with, published an article called New York’s Top Lobbyists Revealed: Real Estate and Gambling Industries Take Center Stage

I was curious so I clicked on it and saw this!

Lobbying efforts also focused on the gambling industry. The state budget included provisions that streamlined the process for authorizing three casino licenses in and around New York City. Some of the companies competing for these licenses, such as SL Green Realty and the Genting Group, were among the top real estate spenders.

Point72 Asset Management, owned by Mets owner Steve Cohen, along with the Seminole Hard Rock, also engaged in lobbying activities for a casino near the team’s stadium. Meanwhile, Silverstein Properties, which recently announced its intention to compete for a gaming license, focused on “strengthening relationships” related to its proposed casino site and other development projects.

All this is very interesting about what is going on over there in Flushing and the possibility of the casino..
