Casino In Minneapolis’ Block E? New Owner Exploring Idea

By Holly Wagner, WCCO-TV

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The new owner of Block E in downtown Minneapolis is taking a gamble.

Minneapolis-based Alatus Corporation says it’s considering a retail center plus a luxury casino for the spot.

“Suggestions for the site have included restaurant, retail and entertainment options as well as a limited-footprint, sophisticated, best-in-class gaming component similar in style and experience to the Bellagio or Wynn,” the corporation said in a statement.

However, a project like this won’t happen overnight. It’s complicated and needs the Minnesota Legislature’s approval and possibly a change to the constitution.
