The 60,000 sq. ft. Empire City Casino addition at Yonkers Raceway in Yonkers, NY is a dynamic departure from ordinary casino design. Featured on its exterior is approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of RHEINZINK PrePATINA blue-grey Solid and Custom Perforated Flat Lock Panels.
RHEINZINK titanium zinc is a product of RHEINZINK America of Woburn, MA. The material for the Empire City Casino addition was fabricated into panels by the distributor, MetalTech-USA of Peachtree City, GA.
Charged with designing the addition was STUDIO V Architecture of New York City. Along with providing a welcoming new casino entrance–including a high-tech porte-cochere that boldly announces the architecture of the structure, the addition provides expanded gaming space, increased food and beverage service and expanded administrative/office areas.
The zinc panels were installed by Custom Exterior Systems Inc. of Sloatsburg, NY.
