BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - The Mississippi Gaming Commission will discuss the stretch of land that could potentially house a new casino resort.

On the commission’s Thursday agenda, they will consider giving Biloxi Capital LLC. site approval to develop a $600 million dollar casino at the former site of the old Tivoli Hotel. This possible new development would rest near the Ohr- O’Keefe Museum, between Main Street and Oak Street.

According to the 2019 public notice, the casino would house 1,300 hotel rooms and include 100,000 square feet for gaming.

The 30-acre piece of land was zoned for gaming in 2007.
