Casino Hotel Topped Out

Cherokee Casino Resort has placed the top beam in its new 19-story luxury hotel. Slated to open in early 2009, the 230,000-SF facility will feature a spa, restaurant and more than 200 rooms and suites.
The hotel tower is part of a $125 million expansion that will make Cherokee Casino Resort the largest gaming resort destination in Oklahoma, at 412,000 SF. The expansion is estimated to create 500 new jobs, increasing Cherokee Casino Resort’s total employee count to more than 2,300 employees.
The beam was lifted into place by a 450-foot crane recently received from Germany. The crane required 30 semi trucks to transport it to Oklahoma. Operated from a ground-based cab, the crane can lift up to 450 tons and reach up to 600 feet.
