(Blyn) - After years of anticipation, it looks like the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe is close to breaking ground on their proposed hotel resort next to the 7 Cedars Casino. Construction on the first of three planned hotel towers is expected to commence sometime next year, and be completed in 2020. Tribal CEO Ron Allen, in project meetings most of the day yesterday, is optimistic about the multi-phase aspect of their plans:
The other stages he’s referring to include the three separate hotel towers, and updates to the layout of the casino.
Described as a “4-Star experience”, the location of the new hotel will be on the grounds between the Casino and the fireworks stand.
Designers are already anticipating highway traffic issues resulting from extra visitors to the property, and are discussing a solution that would entail building a road that would loop around behind the casino, and re-connect with the highway at the Longhouse Deli.
No drawings or designs are available at this time for public viewing, but it’s hoped they’ll be ready within the next few months.
