GLENDALE, AZ - The Tohono O'odham Nation announced plans last week to build a
"Las Vegas-style" resort hotel, casino and convention center on
134 acres of unincorporated land within the city boundaries of Glendale.
The location is 91st and Northern avenues. It will be near the Arizona
Cardinals' Glendale home and the new spring training facility for the Los
Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox.
The 1.2 million-square-foot casino and resort will be the largest in the state.
It project includes a casino, a 600-room hotel, spas, restaurants, a three-acre
atrium with botanical gardens, and a convention center.
The projected cost is $600 million. It will employ 6,000 construction workers
over two years starting in 2010. Before construction can begin the tribe must
get federal approval to place the land into federal trust, which the Tohono
O'odham Nation chairman, Ned Norris Jr., expects will be completed this year.
The tribe would like to open the resort in 2012.
