Paragon announced today their plans to build a $535 million casino which will be the relocation spot for the Edgewater Casino. After the $500 million renovation of BC Place, the proposed "urban resort" would cover up most of it and has a very...interesting look. Are we the only ones that think this is crazy design is completely out of place for downtown waterfront real estate? Paragon's previous design was rejected by the City in 2011 and they are hoping to get this design approved. The new building won't just be a casino though, plans are to build two hotels managed by Marriott International, a conference centre, restaurants, and retail space.
