The new owner of Block E is looking at many different options to fill the space, and one of those options is a casino, according to the Star Tribune.
Several people told the Star Tribune that developer Bob Lux has been going to politicians trying to get support for this casino idea. Although he won't say much about it.
"I've seen it, and it looks fleshed out and makes sense," said Ted Mondale, new chair of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, to the Star Tribune. "He seemed pretty committed."
Owners told Fox9 that they are looking at many different options for the space and that buliding a casino would need approval from the state legislature.
Fox9 reported that no proposal has been introduced so far.
