Park Place Entertainment has gained a running start on the competition in the Catskills.

The casino giant has signed an agreement with the Mohawks to start construction of a $500 million casino/resort complex in Sullivan County, NY.

Park Place reported that the agreements were signed in a formal ceremony at the legendary Kutsher's Resort Hotel and Country Club, near the planned site of the 750-room resort hotel and 130,000 square foot casino.

"The Saint Regis Mohawk casino and resort will bring hundreds of millions of dollars of investment to Sullivan County and create thousands of local jobs, both during and after construction," said Thomas E. Gallagher, Park Place President and CEO.
