The final phase is scheduled to wrap up by next May.

Mohegan has moved closer to starting a major non-gaming development project, according to the Day. The final phase of an environmental clean-up at Preston, Connecticut’s former Norwich Hospital property, is currently underway; it is a project that was previously delayed.

The property is comprised of 393 acres and is located along Route 12 and the Thames river near Preston. The Mohegan Tribe’s current agreement allows the group to develop the space for non-gaming purposes.

Clean-up is scheduled to conclude in May 2024. The state has another 180 days after that to review and certify that the clean-up is finished. Once officially completed, the town will convey the property, according to its agreement with the Tribe. Per the terms of the deal, the town will need to convey the space by January 2025.

Connecticut Senator Cathy Osten said, "I think this is really fantastic. It's great to see progress here. This is going to be an economic revolution for southeastern Connecticut."

Mohegan (formerly known as Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment) develops and operates premier international integrated entertainment resorts. The tribal operator is based in Connecticut but has locations throughout the US, Canada and in Northern Asia. In addition to its developmental achievements, the company owns and operates the WNBA team, Connecticut Sun.

Throughout its near 30-year history, Mohegan has formed strategic partnerships with a variety of brands, including Coca-Cola, Ticketmaster, Paramount Pictures, WNBA, Michael Jordan, the New York Yankees, the Boston Celtics and Live Nation.
