Work Begins on New Bay 101 Casino, Hotel, and Office Project

Bay 101's time in its current form is limited. Their current lease expires on November 2017 in order to make way for a massive office development. The good news for local gamblers is that work is already moving forward on the casino's future home near M8trix, the only other casino in San Jose. The new project is going to be far more elaborate than Bay 101's current facility and includes two new full-service hotels totaling 414 rooms and a nine-story office tower.

The casino portion will have 49 tables, the maximum allowed by current San Jose regulations. The first hotel will be a seven-story Hilton with 174 rooms. The new casino should be operating by September 2017 (assuming there are no delays) and that Hilton is slated to open in early 2018.

The second phase of the project will have a 10-story hotel with 210 rooms and a 240,000 SQFT office tower which will only be built when there is a tenant in tow.

Casino M8trix May Open Today!

Based on this YouTube video from last week, it looks like San Jose's long-awaited new Casino may actually be opening . It has been a long and complicated journey, but it looks like the doors will be swung wide open today open sans the penthouse gaming floor (boo). Even non-gamblers will be able to enjoy the 4 new restaurants--a couple of which should be open very late into the night--and of course the solid addition to our skyline. Of all the high-rises in San Jose at the moment, this is the one that I think best represents a "Silicon Valley" aesthetic.

For anyone that checks out M8trix, be sure to post your thoughts in the comments.

UPDATE: M8trix Ribbon Cutting is tomorrow at 8am, but it does open today at 10am.
