The demolition of the Holland Casino location on Gedempte Kattendiep in Groningen is almost complete. This is evident from information from the municipality of Groningen that became known today, February 20, 2018. If the demolition is indeed completed, the site will be delivered to the municipality. It is not yet known what the municipality will do with the site. The Holland Casino location has been closed for several months. A fire started in August in the building, after which the building was declared irreparably damaged.
The home stretch
A few more works will be carried out on the old site of Holland Casino in the coming days. For example, there will be a damage expert to carry out a number of measurements, but a fence must also be placed around the construction site on the site. If this fence stands, the other deposits can be removed. For local residents, this is a big advantage, because it means that two lanes will be released. These jobs were closed to all traffic all this time.
According to the municipality of Groningen, the old site of Holland Casino is expected to be delivered mid-March. Once the site has been delivered, the municipality can possibly build something else there. Whether this will happen so quickly is not known. It is not yet known what the municipality wants to do with the site.
New Holland Casino location
It is not yet known where the new Holland Casino location will be opened in the city of Groningen. Holland Casino claims that it is still doubling about various possible locations. A while ago the casino announced that it would not spend any time on finding a new location. So it can take a while before the casino has found a new location. It will take even longer before this location is opened and the people from Groningen can gamble again at a Holland Casino location in the area.
