Casino Del Sol and the Pascua Yaqui Tribe in Tucson, Ariz., recently celebrated the completion and grand opening of a $130 million, 161,000-sf hotel, spa and convention center addition to their existing casino facility.
The expansion, which began construction 18 months ago, adds 215 new luxury hotel rooms, along with a conference center that can accommodate up to 2,000 people. The addition also brings a new fine-dining steakhouse that can accommodate up to 100, an international buffet with seating up to 250, an elaborate lobby lounge and bar, a full spa and outdoor pool with sundeck, exercise facilities, a warehouse and a four-level covered parking structure for 1,100 vehicles.
The design and construction team, comprised of international architecture and engineering firm LEO A DALY, contractor McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. and owner’s representative Innovation Project Development (IPD), partnered with the casino’s executive management team and Pascua Yaqui Tribal Council members to create an amenity-rich, Four-Diamond property that creates a destination center for tourists, corporate meetings and conventions, and Tucson-area residents.
