MGM National Harbor, the up-and-coming casino in Prince George's County, has made steady progress in the last few months and is now several levels above grade. Last April, the construction company removed soil, installed foundation piles, and poured concrete for the lowest level of the parking garage. Now, the construction company is onto the third level of the six-story parking garage and has begun erecting steel for the 3,000-seat theater. When complete, the $1.3 billion casino will feature 3,303 video lottery terminals and 160 tables. Along with the development, there will be 24-story, 308-room hotel and a 26,582-square-foot spa and salon. You can also expect 12 restaurants, 27,431-square-feet of conference space, and 18,259-square-feet of retail space. Spokesperson for MGM National Harbor Suzette Meade said that MGM National Harbor will open its doors on time in the second half of 2016. No specific deadline has been set yet. Once complete, MGM National Harbor expects the casino to benefit the community with 3,600 permanent "good-paying" jobs with an annual payroll of $80 million paid to County residents.
