For about a decade people have been trying to come up with a use for the old Harrah's parking garage. So far, there has been no progress made in that direction, but yesterday one man found the abandoned property just right for his purposes.
It's been an eyesore since 2005 when Rita blew through town and many residents can hardly wait for the demolition of the former casino hotel... But now another option has presented itself in the form of an offer to buy the property.
City officials are hoping to create a permanent vacancy in the old Harrah’s hotel on the lakefront in Lake Charles, and they’ll be doubling down on their final decision later this month.
