Casino del Sol begins 10-story hotel construction
November 15, 2010
Construction is moving forward on The Pascua Yaqui’s newest project. The new
Casino del Sol Hotel, Spa and Conference Center will be 10 stories tall when
completed. Originally estimated to cost $120 million. Now is expected to be
under budget and ahead of schedule.
The hope for the casino is to make this an entertainment destination unlike any
other in the area. The new hotel will offer over 200 guest rooms, a lobby
lounge, pool, spa, gym, and three restaurants. There will also be a 50,000
square foot conference center. As well as a 1,100 vehicle parking garage. Plans
also include an outdoor venue. Something that will be unique compared to other
Tucson resorts. In the future, the casino will be adding additional guest rooms,
retail space, and a golf course.
500 jobs have been created for the construction of this project. About half of
these positions went to members of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. When the construction
is completed, 300 more jobs will be added. These will be for positions in the
resort and will be permanent.
Grand opening is scheduled for November 11, 2011
