Horseshoe Casino Cleveland skywalk hits roadblock

May 13, 2013 6:33 PM

Plans for a skywalk that would connect a Cleveland, Ohio, casino with an adjoining parking garage have hit a roadblock. The National Park Service, which administers the National Register of Historic Places, rejected the skywalk’s plans.

According to the agency, the glass-enclosed walkway would affect “the overall historic character of the property.”

The Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper points out that the ruling does not necessarily block the walkway from being built. It just means the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland won’t get tax relief in acquiring the building it now leases for parking customers’ cars.
