OUR FEATURED PROJECTS
HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO
Sioux City, IA
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City is an award-winning gaming destination offering more than 850 slot machines and 26 table games. The property’s Hard Rock Hotel is a AAA Four Diamond rated hotel, a distinction which only five percent of the more than 28,000 properties approved by AAA achieve. Complementing the Hotel and Casino are six restaurants and bars including the World Tour Buffet, Fuel American Grill, and Main + Abbey, the property’s AAA Three Diamond rated restaurant. Throughout the property, guests can experience the legends by viewing the vast Hard Rock memorabilia collection, with iconic pieces from SLASH to Johnny Cash.
As a partner with Sioux City, we helped revitalize their downtown entertainment district and utilized an existing historic building within that district for the Hard Rock property.
DEL LAGO RESORT & CASINO
Located in the popular Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York, this $440 million property opened in February 2017 and features a 94,000-square-foot casino, which is home to 1,704 slot machines, 66 table games and 14 poker tables. A 6,000 square-foot DraftKings Sportsbook area add additional betting opportunities for patrons. The del Lago was named the #2 Top Casino in the nation by the readers of USA Today.
The del Lago Hotel has been honored with a AAA Four Diamond rating, a distinction which only five percent of the more than 28,000 properties approved by AAA achieve. Besides the casino, there are eight restaurants and bars, a spa and several retail outlets. There is also 40,000 square-feet of convention space; and The Vine, which is the property’s 2,400-seat entertainment venue that hosts a weekly comedy night and various concerts throughout the year.
This community wanted an upscale resort with first-class accommodations and farm-to-table fine dining. They were also interested in promoting agri-tourism for the area with a large farmers market. The award-winning del Lago has helped the Fingerlakes region accomplish those goals.
KANSAS STAR HOTEL & CASINO
Located just south of Wichita in Sumner County, the Kansas Star Casino offers 1,750 slot machines, over 50 table games, an 8-table poker room and five great restaurants. It’s a gaming entertainment destination without equal in the region! In addition to the casino there are 300 hotel guest rooms, including 90 suites.
The local community wanted an indoor arena for rodeo and riding events. Even before construction began on the casino property, the Kansas Star Equestrian Pavilion was opened. The multi-purpose center consists of an open-air practice arena, over 180 stalls, wash racks and show offices. In addition to equestrian purposes, it is also utilized for concerts, community events and has even hosted UFC fighting events.
