As the Casino’s across the river in Detroit work at building their permanent facilities, Casino Windsor is well underway with their expansion project.
The expanded Windsor Casino will contain a second hotel tower, and a 5,000 seat auditorium.
The expansion is the tower on the right. This weekend’s Windsor Star also contained this small blurb:

Casino Windsor will soon be bidding to compete for high-profile entertainment acts with Detroit’s Fox Theatre, DTE Energy Music Theatre and Fisher Theatre once its expansion is completed in early 2008.
“Our customers can expect to see world-class entertainment,” said spokeswoman Holly Ward. “There will be entertainers coming never seen in Windsor before.”
The casino has already launched a North America-wide hunt to find a new director of entertainment and special events whose assignment will be to book top-notch talent and Broadway-type shows.
It’s been working in Niagara Falls, so it will be interesting to see how that plays in Windsor.
