Resort Casino Proposed in Dumfries to Open in 2023

A new casino and hotel in Dumfries is being proposed to the town council February 16th. The proposed plans would have the Rose Casino being built upon the Potomac Landfill, with a completion date target of 2023. Groundbreaking would begin by August of this year with a completion targeted for January 2023. 

The Rose Casino, owned by Colonial Downs, will be the first casino for Virginia. Rosies Gaming Emporium, which opened up January 8th in Triangle Shopping Center in Dumfries, already has 95 video slots in their 19,000 square foot facility.

The plan would cost roughly $389 million dollars for the estimated 50,000 square foot gaming facility, 7,000 square feet of meeting/event space, and a 1,500 capacity theatre. The casino would also feature 200 hotel rooms and 8 bars and restaurants. 

The casino would create over 640 new jobs with an average pay of $15/hour. A total of 96 managers would be hired at an average of $70,000 salary per year. This would bring an influx of jobs to the region. 

Part of the agreement is to convert the rest of the Potomac Landfill into a park with sport fields, trails, and open space. The 79 acres of park would open in December 2022.

Colonial Downs says the new casino would generate $11.3 million a year in new tax revenue for Prince William County and nearly $80,000 a year for Dumfries. The vote for the new casino will be at 7:00 p.m. via zoom on Tuesday, February 16th.
