INGLEWOOD, Calif., July 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Hollywood Park Casino Company announced today that the new Cary Grant Pavilion at Hollywood Park Casino (HPC) will open this Fall. The grand opening of HPC will usher in the city’s aura of glamour and luxury as the first of numerous businesses included as part of the developing retail district in the Inglewood Community.

Sitting on nearly 11 acres in a newly emerging renaissance district and directly facing the expanded Century Boulevard, the new HPC location will be just steps from the former location. As part of an updated art and social community minutes from Downtown Los Angeles and three miles away from Los Angeles International Airport, HPC sets the latest standard for Westside gambling.

“While the complex undergoes a physical overhaul, the staff at Hollywood Park is committed to making the transition as smooth as possible,” said Hollywood Park Casino General Manager Deven Kumar. “HPC is situated both to serve its current player base and draw in a new generation of gamers. The new casino will still have our favorite player perks, like Blackjack and Baccarat, as well as our daily no-limit Texas Hold’em tournaments, but the new property is going to be bigger and better than ever.”

Designed by San Diego-based JCJ Architecture, the new casino will span 110,000 square feet and include the best amenities in gaming and technology. HPC will set a winning stage with 125 card game tables, simulcast wagering, a sports bar and restaurant (Century Bar & Grill), intimate lounge, gourmet café, and a 20 percent increase in high limit play while including traditionally historic elements of HPC.

“This new casino was also designed with luxury and convenience in mind,” said Kumar. “The new property will engage the art and social communities featuring global artists’ work throughout. Signature to Southern California, palm trees iconography will line the drive as guests pull into valet park while a new parking structure are some of the included and updated amenities for incoming guests. Visitors will feel very safe, while enjoying themselves in beautiful surroundings.”

The new HPC property broke ground in July 2015 and is set to host grand opening events beginning Fall 2016.

“This is the first step in our revitalization plan,” said Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts. “HPC and our other projects will breathe new life into our great city. Along with the future home of the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams, HPC and the many new businesses coming to Inglewood will bring with them new jobs, increased revenue and beautiful new properties for residents and visitors to enjoy, while not using any tax dollars or public funding for any of the construction.”

With innovative and forward-thinking initiatives, Hollywood Park Casino is poised to become a leader in the California gaming industry; being adjacent to the City of Champions Revitalization project is simply an added bonus.

HPC has retained a roster of top agencies to support the new casino: Bloom Ads, media buying agency of record (AOR); BRANDed Management, PR AOR; SixteenFifty Creative Intelligence, creative AOR.

Hollywood Park Casino is set to open in fall, 2016 adjacent to the City of Champions Revitalization Project. The casino will be an expansive 110,000 ft., on 10.6 acres, with three beautiful bars, 125 card game tables and multiple dining options.
