A topping-off ceremony to celebrate the 17th and final floor of the new San Manuel Casino in California, US, was held last week.
The building is a major expansion to the resort that is owned by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. It has taken 27 months of construction to reach this stage of the development.
Tribal leaders were among the speakers at the ceremony, including band chairman Ken Ramirez. It is hoped to open the casino’s expanded gaming space, together with a 24-hour restaurant and a high-end dining room plus shops, in the summer of 2021.
The band’s first on-site hotel will open next winter with 429 rooms and more hospitality offerings. Finally an event venue will complete the expansion in 2022.
The casino will be located 60 miles from downtown Los Angeles and close to the LA-Ontario International Airport. The location currently has over 5,000 slot machines.
