Pinnacle Casino Rivierre ~ Baton Rouge

More than a year after receiving approval from voters, Pinnacle Entertainment is moving ahead to get zoning for its south Baton Rouge casino.

The casino is part of Pinnacle’s proposed mixed-use development near the intersection of Gardere Lane and River Road that is scheduled to go before the city-parish Planning Commission at 5 p.m. Monday in the Metro Council Chambers at 222 St. Louis St.

Pinnacle’s proposed casino would be part of a massive 577-acre tract in south Baton Rouge that eventually would include a golf course, an equestrian center, a 14.6-acre central park, 430 single-family homes, 240 condominiums or apartments, 137,500 square feet of retail space, 137,500 square feet of office space, two 100-room hotels and a 160,000- square-foot casino and entertainment complex.
