Building The Future of Chicago Gaming


Construction & Redevelopment

The new Hawthorne Casino & Race Course is designed by Aria Group Architects and general construction will be managed by W.E. O’Neil. The project will create 1200 construction jobs.

Hawthorne has set a goal of 30% of construction spending to be committed to maximizing economic inclusion across Minority Business Enterprises (MBE); Women-Owned Business Enterprises (WBE); Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE); and Veteran-Owned Business Enterprises (VBE).  Hawthorne has partnered with leading diversity consultant Ralph G. Moore & Associates to achieve this goal.
