The Master plan also has future Travel Plaza that will accommodate trucks, another hotel tower, expanded gaming, and a parking garage.


A unique and economical way to give the site a natural feel was to level the site which was a very rocky hill. We blasted the site, brought in a heavy duty crusher; major pieces of the rock were used in bank stabilization and made 45,000 tons for the rock base for parking and building pads.

To continue the Tribes desire to maintain this natural feel of the site 1,200 trees and 11,000 shrubs were included in the landscape design. The once wooded site still appears to be a wooded site. The Tribe also wanted the swan (symbolic of the tribes grace and dignity) and panther (symbolic of the tribes strength, courage and prowness in battle) in their project and they are incorporated into the water feature at the porte cochere (see photo).
