The Dumfries, Virginia planning commission has approved the construction of The Rose Casino & Hotel project. The $389 million gaming and entertainment destination will feature a hotel with up to 305 rooms, eight restaurants, a 1,500-seat theatre and 175,000 square feet of gaming space on land adjacent to the current site of the Potomac Landfill, located off Interstate 95 and Va. 234. The project is developed by Colonial Downs Group and gambling will be limited to off-track betting and historic horse race betting machines, which are similar to slot machines. The first phase of The Rose is planned to open in 2023 and would consist of several restaurants, the gaming floor, up to 155 hotel rooms, a structured parking garage and the park. The second phase will consist of additional hotel rooms, restaurants, retail and a live theater with a target opening date of 2025 or 2026.
