PROPOSED CASINO DISAPPROVED BY U.S. GOVT
The Kewadin Casino proposed for Lansing was denied by the US Department of the Interior in July 2017. See news article below for information.
Nation | Tribe: Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians
Michigan Avenue and Cedar Street
(Adjacent to the Lansing Center)
The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians hope to build this Kewadin Casino in downtown Lansing. The casino will be a 125,000-square-foot facility costing and estimated $245 million. Employment is estimated at 1,500 permanent jobs plus 700 construction jobs.
In December 2013 the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati overturned a federal injunction placed a year before. This reversal allows the tribe to move forward with their application to the U.S. Interior Department to take the land into federal trust for the purpose of gaming.
More legal hurdles will follow. However, if finally approved, there will be two phases of construction. A temporary casino will be built at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Larch Street. A permanent casino will be built later on a larger site along Larch Street.

July 28, 2017
The US Department of the Interior has halted the construction plans of a Lansing casino by the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. The tribe had applied to the Department to place the land into federal trust for an Indian gaming casino.
In 2012 the tribe bought the land for $287,000. The intention was to build a casino that would be located next to the convention center in Lansing.
Since the land will not be placed into trust as a requirement of the 1934 Indian Reorganization Act, the project cannot move forward.
The casino would have 48 table games and 3,000 slot machines and employed 1,500 people. The total cost was $245 million.
