On Tuesday, the Michigan Gaming Control Board unanimously approved Greektown Casino's plans for a permanent home.
Yesterday's decision gives Greektown Casino - which has operated in the downtown Detroit-neighborhood known as Greektown since November 2000 - the go-ahead to move forward with plans for a $200 million permanent home.
A city-owned parking structure at St. Antoine and Monroe was demolished last week to make way for Greektown's new parking structure.
Greektown Casino is the first 100-percent Michigan-owned casino to open in Detroit and is the first tribal-owned casino in the United States to open on non-tribal land.
