NATIONAL HARBOR, MD – The Baltimore Sun’s Michael Dresser reports that the Peterson Companies, developer of the National Harbor complex in Prince George’s County, will announce a partner for its proposed casino at the development.
Peterson said the partner his company selects will be a major Las Vegas player but declined to identify it before the announcement. He said his company will not take a direct role in a running any casino — a field in which Peterson Co. has no experience.
National Harbor is expected to receive a license for a casino in a proposed special legislative session later this summer. In addition to adding a sixth casino license, the legislature is expected approve table games.
