    New casino proposal for Big E site

    WEST SPRINGFIELD — In a glitzy ceremony replete with a rock concert and glass cases displaying music memorabilia, Hard Rock International today unveiled a proposal for a casino complex that would cost $700 million to $800 million to build at the Eastern States Exposition fairgrounds in West Springfield, home of The Big E agricultural fair.

    Forty acres of the 175-acre fairgrounds would be dedicated to the new resort, said Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock. The project will include shops and restaurants, a hotel, a rooftop pool, a spa, a concert venue, and 25,000 square feet of convention space, Allen said. Plans also call for a rock and roll museum.

    What do you think of the plan?
