    MGM gets the nod to build Marylandís sixth casino at National Harbor in Prince Georgeís

    MGM National Harbor? You bet.

    A state commission awarded Marylandís sixth and final casino license Friday to MGM Resorts International, which plans to build a $925 million casino complex at National Harbor in Prince Georgeís County.

    The soaring casino, from the same company that owns Bellagio, MGM Grand and many other high-end, high-wattage gambling resorts, has the potential to change not only the regionís skyline, but also the calculus for where tourists stay, where business groups hold conventions and where Washington lobbyists entertain.

    The property, slated to open in mid-2016, will be within easy Uber range of official Washington: less than 10 miles from the U.S. Capitol and 11 from the White House. It will feature 3,600 slot machines, 140 gaming tables, a concert theater, several celebrity-chef-driven restaurants, a spa, luxury retail stores, a reflecting pool and other amenities.

    ďFor us, itís a great calling card. It elevates the cachet of Prince Georgeís County,Ē said County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D), who long favored putting the casino on the Potomac. ďBut this is a big deal for the entire region.Ē

    In winning the right to put a bit of Las Vegas on the Potomac, MGM National Harbor will inject a city of lawyers and wonks ó where gray is forever the new black ó with a major dose of flash. What happens in Washington may not stay in Washington, moving down the river to Prince Georgeís, once a backwater for luxury development.

    ďThis is a big day for National Harbor,Ē said developer Milton V. Peterson, who called the addition of the casino ďsort of the crownĒ in his 350-acre mini-city, currently anchored by the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, 70 restaurants and stores, and the new Tanger Outlets mall. Peterson is working on adding more hotels and time-share units to National Harbor to accommodate the influx of gamblers, he said.

    PG County is as ghetto as it gets. You won't catch me within 5 miles of that place much less inside gambling.
