Butz Enterprises, Inc. served as Construction Manger for the casino, restaurants, gaming salon and parking garage. The retail area and event center are separate phases of the development and are currently being completed.
The former home of Bethlehem Steel Corporation, the 126-acre site is the nation’s largest brownfield, with an industrial history dating to 1861. The site contained a mix of mill buildings, blast furnaces, office buildings, cranes, trestles and historic structures. The scope of work included preservation of some of the most significant Bethlehem Steel buildings.
New construction reflects the architecture and industrial heritage of the former Bethlehem Steel site. Structures are composed of steel trusses, steel frames with brick infill, concrete, corrugated metal sheathing and gabled roofs with clerestories and light monitors. Interior spaces employ wood block floors, exposed skeletal steel, backlit perforated metal screens and soaring transparent glass monitors.
