The construction of the Lucky Strike Casino project at 2811 Carson St. is now underway as it recently broke ground.
Shaheen Beauchamp Builders has been tasked to construct the Carson casino project which is owned by Norther Nevada Comstock Investments which owns several gaming locations throughout Northern Nevada, including Comstock Casino, Cactus Jacks and Jackpot Crossing in Carson City, the Fernley Nugget, COD Casino in Minden, and the Fallon Nugget.
In a statement, Shaheen Beauchamp owner said:
“Shaheen Beauchamp Builders looks forward to another successful project with a client we have provided construction services for over a decade.The building will be an attractive addition to Carson City and another quality entertainment and gaming option.”
Special Use Permit
In 2018, Woody’s Entertainment Inc. applied for a special use permit to operate a casino and bar at the former Grandma Hattie’s restaurant by transferring an existing gaming license at 444 E. Williams St. and operate a Luck Strike Casino inside the existing building on South Carson St. Since the property is zoned as commercial retail, the applicants needed a special use permit.
The developer originally planned to gut the inside of the former Grandma Hattie’s restaurant and turn it to casino. The project was already given the go-signal by the Carson City Planning commission as early as two years ago but then the owners had a change of plan.
A Bigger Casino
After deciding the the Grandma Hattie’s restaurant site was too small, they resubmitted an application to the Planning commission and requested to completely tear down Grandma Hattie’s and build a site that was 50% bigger. Once again, the Commission gave the project its approval.
The new casino plan includes 9,000 square feet of restaurant, gaming floor, bar and lounge sports betting, customer service, and lots of parking space. The owners are anticipating a grand launch next summer.
