New casino may be in works at I-10 and Grant

It’s a long shot right now, but there may be a new casino on the site of the abandoned Century Theater complex at I-10 and Grant Road. The Pascua Yaqui Nation bought the 15-acre site in 2011 for $4.5 million, but have never released its plans for the site. It has been rumored it would be a new casino but that has never been confirmed.
