Yesterday, Wednesday May 29th, construction crews broke ground on the new Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore, MD.

The Lighting Practice teamed with KA, Inc. Architecture and Friedmutter Group as the Lighting Designers for Baltimore’s newest gaming destination, Horseshoe Casino.  TLP will be responsible for all of the lighting design which will include gaming areas, a World Series of Poker room, three lounges, feature restaurants and bars including a “Taste of Baltimore” food hall, an outdoor entertainment plaza, and the exterior façade of this two-story casino.  We are proud to be a part of this project which will encourage local retail development in Baltimore’s south side.

The new Horseshoe Baltimore casino will spur future restaurants, hotels and shops around Baltimore’s southern entrance, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and executives for Caesars Entertainment Inc. said Wednesday.

The comments came during the long-awaited ground breaking of the $400 million casino along Russell Street near M&T Bank Stadium. The start of the project comes almost four years after Maryland voters approved a casino for the city. CBAC Gaming LLC, a consortium led by Caesars and Cleveland-based Rock Gaming LLC, received permission in July from the state Video Lottery Facility Location Commission to operate a Baltimore casino.

“Horseshoe Baltimore will be a proud landmark that announces your arrival into the great city and serve as an anchor for future development between here and M&T Bank Stadium,” said Chad Barnhill, general manager for the casino.

The project will be home to 3,750 slot machines and between 80 and 100 table games.
