A ground breaking ceremony will be held on June 29 for the new casino owned by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. The ceremony will be held at 9 A.M. Members of the tribe, Arizona state officials, and members of the nearby communities are expected to attend.
When completed the casino will be 166,341 square feet. Plans include a garden court, fine dining, a sports bar, an entertainment venue, and other amenities for guests to enjoy.
The new casino will be a replacement for the current casino owned by the tribe. Fort McDowell Casino is 150,000 square feet. The original building will remain. However, plans for the building have not been announced.
The current casino location will remain open while construction continues on the new gaming venue.
The cost for the new casino has not been released. However, officials for the tribe have stated that the cost for the casino would be multimillion dollar.
The project was developed as a way to strengthen the economic independence for the tribe. Revenue made from the casino will go to support tribal members. As well as benefiting the surrounding communities.
Nearly 30 years ago the tribe built the first bingo hall in the Phoenix area to offer high stakes games.
Construction is scheduled to begin by the end of summer. The grand opening is estimated to be by the spring of 2020.
The new casino will be located east of Phoenix by 30 mins off of the Beeline Highway.
