Twin River to acquire trio of Caesars and Eldorado casinos

first_img Topics: Casino & games Casino & games 24th April 2020 | By contenteditor Twin River Worldwide has struck an agreement to acquire Eldorado Resorts properties in Louisiana and Nevada, and Caesars Entertainment’s Bally’s Atlantic City.The agreement with Eldorado sees it take over the Eldorado Shreveport Resort and Casino in Louisiana and the Mont Bleu Casino Resort & Spa in Lake Tahoe, Nevada for a purchase price of $155m.Eldorado had previously agreed to sell the properties to Maverick Gaming, but said these agreements had been terminated as a result of the Twin River deal, with the deposits paid by the original acquirer now returned.Each deal remains subject to Eldorado completing its acquisition of Caesars Entertainment, and subject to Federal Trade Commission clearance, each is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.“The agreement to divest Shreveport and MontBleu to Twin River Worldwide Holdings is consistent with our continued focus on closing the Caesars transaction in the first half of 2020,” Eldorado chief executive Tom Reeg said.The $25m deal for Bally’s Atlantic City, struck with Caesars and Vici Properties – a real estate investment trust (REIT) spun off from the operator in 2017 – covers certain assets and the property on which they are operated. Twin River will also acquire the license to build a sportsbook and launch online betting and gaming from the property. That deal is expected to be finalised late in 2020, or early 2021.“We look forward to the reopening of Bally’s Atlantic City as soon as appropriate once the public health emergency related to COVID-19 has passed,” Caesars CEO Tony Rodio commented. “We appreciate Twin River’s commitment to this property, which has a great future ahead under its stewardship.”Read the full story on iGB North America.

This project of 3 attached houses follows the principals of sustainable development in an effort to minimize the impact on the environment during the entire life cycle of the building, ensure individual comforts while encouraging social relationships between neighbors, secure a long-term return on investment and keep maintenance and running costs low. Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherOne of the objectives of the project is to foster the advantages of shared living while maintaining the individuality of each dwelling.  By the position of the garages and the portal definition of the entrances, each house is discovered by means of a passage through a private courtyard.  On the opposite side, the terraces give onto a common garden and the expression of the individual houses is erased to give the feeling of one big house.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Thomas JantscherBy the structural layout and choice of materials, the project is conceived for maximum flexibility.  Each house can vary its layout and express its own individuality. And at the level of the entire structure, the possibility exists for future evolution, even to an eventual transformation into a small apartment buildingby adding two stories, thereby maintaining its sustainability and potential integration into a future town planning.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherIn this project, the use of natural materials was preferred (rammed earth, terracotta masonry & wood), choosing materials according to their level of gray energy and their durability. The construction is composed of a series of masonry walls on the ground floor, which support a wooden volume above.  As inspired by local rural construction, the masonry protects the wood from the ravages of ground humidity and at the same time compensates for the wood’s lack of inertia.  Furthermore, a rammed-earth monolith, made from the earth excavated for the basement, penetrates each dwelling from top to bottom.  It adds a passive regulation of temperature and humidity.  In addition to the windows on the facade, a central skylight ensures that every room benefits from natural lighting and ventilation. Finally, by the manual opening of a trap window, cool temperate air from the lower level is drawn through the house and out the skylight to act as a natural cooling system.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherSave this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherThese examples illustrate how the project minimizes complex automated regulation systems and gives preference to passive solutions, thereby optimizing energy consumption during all four seasons.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherProject gallerySee allShow less10 Of The World’s Most Spectacular Sacred SpacesArchitecture NewsMuseum of Socialism-Jayaprakash Narayan Interpretation Center / ArchohmSelected Projects Share ArchDaily “COPY” Villas Jonc / Christian von DüringSave this projectSaveVillas Jonc / Christian von Düringlast_img read more

A series of cascading courts between the house and the party wall forms the basis by which this semi- detached house is organized. From the outside one is scarcely able to see these courtyards due to the screeining and deep shadows. The courtyards are covered with a glass roof and timber pergola, which makes them pretty much all weather spaces. Indeed they are open at the ends and that makes it a very breezy space and house which is ideal for our hot tropical climate.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe exterior elevations have an almost Japanese simplicity with the vertical timber screens and off form concrete walls. The timber screens gives the upper level bedrooms privacy from the road. At the entrance, one is greeted by a cascading water feature with an upper level planter. The main living areas on the ground level open to a bamboo garden on the side. The family room on the second level is a double volume space which fronts the main courtyard with a feature tree set in a middle of a water feature. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessKyeongryunjae / mmArchitectsSelected ProjectsBedford Park House / Mehdi Marzyari ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeHYLA ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on July 16, 2018Cite: “Cascading Courts / HYLA Architects” 16 Jul 2018.

Income in 2012 was boosted by a very large legacy of €1.5 million but the legacy figure for 2013 was €421,000.As well as a drop in legacy income, the Hospice’s donations fell from €2.3 million to €2.2 million, although ‘other fundraising income,’ which includes fundraising events, increased from €1.1 million to €1.3 million.In 2013 the Hospice ran a door-to-door campaign which it describes as successful but said its mail campaigns and annual raffle income fell. The charity put the drop in income down to the bad publicity surrounding charities in general.Atlantic Philanthropies continued to support the Hospice and the organisation also received support from a number of major companies, including Arthur Cox, Merrill Lynch, Novartis and the Ulster Bank.As well as raising money for its own operations the Irish Hospice Foundation coordinates Ireland ‘Biggest Coffee Morning’ and Sunflower Days which raise in excess of €2 million annually.Fundraising costs increased in 2013, from €1.2 million to €1.4 million.

2015 a record year for legacies

This is the highest number of charitable estates ever recorded by the data analysis firm.Donors included an average of three charity beneficiaries in each Will, with over 121,000 bequests recorded in 2015.Legacy income also rose. Smee & Ford’s analysis of legacy income for charities with total income of £500,000 and above in England and Wales indicates that the value of gifts in Wills grew from £2.2 billion to £2.3 billion, a rise of 5% from 2013/14 to 2014/15. Total legacy gifts across the UK are estimated to be worth around £2.5 billion, according to figures from Legacy Foresight.Earlier this year, Smee & Ford also revealed that the number of charities named as beneficiaries in Wills had grown by 10% from the year 2014 to 2015.Rob Cope, director of Remember A Charity, said:“This year’s findings are great news for the sector, showing that more people are choosing to remember a charity in their Will than ever before. While the marketplace has benefited from an increase in property and share prices in recent years, inflating legacy values, it is the continued appetite for legacy giving among supporters that remains critical to long term market growth.“Legacy growth is testament to the collaborative work of so many charities, the legal profession and Government in becoming increasingly vocal about legacies and overcoming the barriers often associated with gifts in Wills.”Remember a Charity in your Will Week takes place from 12th-18th September.
