Happy Father’s Day - Karen. M ANITOBA Liquor & Lotteries is betting a bigger Club Regent Casino will be better for tourism. The Crown corporation announced Friday it is seeking private- sector partners to develop a 100- to 150- room boutique hotel and two privately operated 200- to 250- seat restaurants to be connected to the west side of the Transcona- area casino. The 50,000- square- foot development is expected to enhance Club Regent’s appeal as a destination centre for Manitobans and out- of- province tourists, Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries ( MLL) said in a news release. It will be connected to the casino by an indoor courtyard and atrium with a Liquor Mart Express store and pop- up vendors displaying Manitobamade products, the release said. The development will have a significant economic impact, creating jobs through the project’s construction phase to its completion with more positions in the hospitality industry, Economic Development Winnipeg Inc. chief executive officer Marina James said in the news release. Every year, an average of 180,000 out- of- province guests visit the Casinos of Winnipeg. The new Club Regent Event Centre had 65,000 guests in its opening year and hosted 71 major shows, banquets and third- party events. The next expansion on the west side is expected to draw even more visitors to the province, James said. “ These latest enhancements will support Winnipeg’s growing profile as a destination city that out- of- province tourists will want to visit,” she said. Construction is expected to begin next year. The capital cost for the development requires an investment of approximately $ 30 million from MLL and $ 30 million from the private sector. MLL said it will recover its investment from land leases and property rentals. It says the hotel and restaurants will create close to 200 full- and part- time jobs. “ I am excited about this unique development,” Dave Angus, president and CEO of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, said in a news release. “ Winnipeg is a vibrant city, and this project will further complement our diverse restaurant scene and will offer guests even more distinct hotel options.” — staff WAYNE GLOWACKI / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS Chief among them Winnipeg police Chief Devon Clunis ( centre at left) and Kevin Chief, MLA for Point Douglas, head out with 130 students and teachers from Norquay School at the start of the Run With the Chiefs annual community fun run Friday.
