The Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort will be undergoing a $26.5 million renovation. Members of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council recently approved the project with a 11 to 1 vote.
Construction is expected to begin by fall of this year. The competition will be sometime near spring of 2018.
Most of the renovations will be to improve the casino's amenities. Located close to the casino gaming floor will be a new nightclub and sports bar. The non-smoking area will be enclosed. The entertainment hall will also receive updating. There will also be a new VIP lounge and high limit gaming areas. The poker room will be moved to a different location. The current sub shop will also undergo a new branding.
In total the construction will take place over seven phases that will start in August. The first phase will be for the entertainment hall. New lighting elements will be added. The acoustics will also be upgraded. Floor to ceiling sound isolation panels will be added. Plus there will be new panels added for multi-media.
The second phase will begin in September. That will involve the moving of the high limit gaming area to a new location and the new VIP lounge being built.
