Plans have been unveiled for a casino and deluxe destination resort in East Taunton, Massachusetts.

The project, dubbed First Light, is estimated to cost $500m. Work will be carried out in phases, with phase one involving construction of the casino, restaurants, entertainment and retail offerings. This phase is expected to be completed by the middle of next year.

Plans for other phases will include the construction of three hotels, a parking garage, as well as a water park.

The project is being financially backed by the Genting Group of Malaysia. It is also anticipated to create at least 1,000 construction jobs, and about 2,600 permanent jobs.

The project is expected to break ground by April, subject to state approval.
