Florida-based Hard Rock International eyes casino expansion near Albany, New York

Competition could be steep

RENSSELAER, New York - Hard Rock International says it's involved in a proposal to build a casino across the Hudson River from Albany.

The Orlando, Florida-based entertainment company announced Thursday that it's working with a development group on the proposed Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on the riverfront in the city of Rensselaer.

New York state this fall will grant up to four casino licenses in three upstate regions: the Albany-Saratoga area, the Southern Tier-Finger Lakes region and the Catskills and mid-Hudson River Valley.

More than a dozen applications are expected by the June 30 submission deadline.
