Construction photos: Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, 8/18/12

The following 21 photos of the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati construction site were taken August 18, 2012. First, from Broadway and Eggleston Avenue, then from Van Meter Street and the Oregon Street steps in Mount Adams.

Construction is more than 50 percent complete on the $400 million, 354,000-square-foot facility, which is scheduled to open in spring 2013. The casino will feature a nearly 100,000-square-foot gaming floor with more than 2,000 slot machines, 72 table games, a high-limits area, a World Series of Poker room, and a VIP Player's lounge; 33,000 square feet of multipurpose space for business meetings and social events; and three street-side bars/restaurants, including a 400-seat Margaritaville restaurant.

Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati will be the last of Ohio's casinos to open, following casinos in Cleveland, Toledo, and Columbus.
