Oneida Nation starts construction of third casino as outlet mall remains on hold

The Oneida Nation is on track to open its third gaming facility in New York.

Construction on the Point Place Casino in Bridgeport began in July, The Rome Sentinel reported. The facility, which features 65,000 square-feet of gaming, dining and entertainment space, is due to open in the spring of 2018.

“Construction is ahead of schedule," Joel Barkin, the tribe's vice president of communications, told The Oneida Dispatch last month.

Bridgeport is about 22 miles from Turning Stone Resort Casino, the tribe's first and flagship facility in Verona. A second facility, the Yellow Brick Road Casino, opened in nearby Chittenango in 2015.

Additional developments will be announced in the fall, Barkin told The Oneida Observer-Dispatch. But plans for a $100 million outlet mall at Turning Stone remain on hold while tenants are being located, he said.
