Swinerton is currently underway on the construction of an 80,000-square-foot ground-up event center, food court, casino remodel, and gaming space expansion for the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe in Auburn, WA. Once open in April 2020, the event center will be home to fights and available as a rental for corporate events. The existing 160,000-square-foot casino floor is to be remodeled in phases.
Swinerton has completed 10,000 square feet thus far providing new carpet, ceiling, lighting, column finishes, and wall coverings. Also included in the remodel is a complete makeover of the existing restrooms, for which Swinerton has currently completed three of nine. The three-venue food court is attached to the first casino remodel phase, set to open to the public in late October 2019.
Looking toward the future, the tribe has broken ground on the same site on what will be a 400-room hotel complete with a steakhouse on the roof. Drawings are set to come out for bid this fall with the project underway shortly after. The end goal of these projects, for the client, is to have the biggest Las Vegas style casino and hospitality destination in the Pacific Northwest…and we are here to build it with them!
