Not surprising but wow that's a huge spread. It would be interesting to know the geographic/demographic information of the people who voted.

If the MGM at the National Harbor resembles or is on par with the MGM in Las Vegas it will be a huge tourist attraction for this area and a major plus for PG county.

Based on descriptions it will probably be a mini me version of what's in LV minus the brights lights

It would be interesting to see how they cram in all in 20 acres bounded by highways and water.

hmm you are assuming that everyone that will go will be gambling. There will be more there than a casino...

Yes, it will be interesting....To be honest that slice of land doesn't look like 20 acres (neither does the 22 proposed by Parx for that matter). I am sure that they will also make use of the space underneath(e.g. parking, etc.)

I was disappointed to learn the MGM site would be closer to Oxon Hill Rd rather than within the National Harbor itself. I expected a bigger space for the site to allow for expansion and, as you mentioned, parking. Also, I'm anxious to see if the additional lanes will provide the infrastucture needed for the outlets and the casino.

I'm surprised I haven't heard much regarding the Parx proprosal aside from one report. Does anyone have any more details of this likelihood?
