The agreement is for the construction of a major hotel property with a casino, restaurant and retail shops.

The casino will feature over 200 slots, 5 game tables, a sports book and café. In addition restaurant and retail opportunities will be available on individual parcels fronting Highway 160. Future phases planned at the project include a large retail, entertainment, restaurant and movie theatre district. The project is expected to break ground in the Fall of 2018.
