CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - This is a “character sketch” provided by contractor Ryan Companies US Inc. in Cedar Rapids of what the proposed Cedar Rapids casino will resemble.

The sketch shows that the casino with parking ramp will sit in a one-by-two-block area, which Cedar Rapids casino investor Steve Gray says will be between First and Second avenues SW and First and Third streets SW across the Cedar River from downtown. The casino will face the river with the ramp behind it.

The investors also want to purchase land between First Avenue West and Interstate 380 for green space and future expansion, Gray says.
