Imagine Casino/Concord Casino Thursday announced it has received final approval to build a 44,000 square foot charitable casino, restaurant and brewery in Concord, New Hampshire.  The approval by the City of Concord Planning Board includes a Phase II development featuring a hotel and a 20,000 square foot conference center.

“Our team couldn’t be more excited, and the recent approval highlights our view that the project has strong local and community support,” said Andy Sanborn, a former New Hampshire state senator and managing partner of the enterprise, in a statement. “New Hampshire’s favorable tax structure and the way gaming operations benefit charities around the state and state coffers, truly makes this a win for the state and its constituents.”

The first phase of the development will include a 26,000 square foot gaming space featuring 486 electronic games, 21 tables games, poker rooms and quick serve and upscale casual dining options, plus space for live music.

The new casino will be located on Concord’s East Side.

Imagine/Concord Casino holds an exclusive right to offer electronic historical  horse racing electronic games in New Hampshire’s Capital region, including table games and both tournament and cash poker games.
