Live! Hotel Earns Prestigious
Four Diamond Rating From AAA
The Cordish Companies today announced that its flagship LIVE! HOTEL, located at Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover, Maryland, has earned the coveted AAA Four Diamond Rating to become the only accommodation in Anne Arundel County and the BWI Airport District, in the heart of the Baltimore/Washington corridor, to receive this recognition.

Nationwide, only six percent of the 27,000 AAA Inspected & Approved hotels receive the Four Diamond status. With this achievement, Live! Casino & Hotel joins a prestigious group of high-end luxury hotels to hold this rating.

“The first priority for all of our properties is to provide our guests with a best-in-class experience every time they visit. We are proud to receive this incredible honor for Live! Hotel and to be nationally-recognized as a premiere luxury destination among the elite in the industry,” said David Cordish, Chairman of The Cordish Companies.
Opportunity Zone Fund Aims to Raise $100M — Invest in Prince George's County
College Park's Verte Opportunity Zone Fund Inc. is aiming to raise $100 million to invest in startups across the country, according to its CEO.

The fund will invest, as its name suggests, in startups and other growing companies based in or moving to federally-recognized "opportunity zones," in which investors can see capital gains taxes reduced or even completely eliminated. The zones were created by Congress in the tax-reform bill passed in late 2017, and while many companies have crafted funds focused on real estate, only a few are targeting companies.
