Phase III continues! The arch at the beginning of our driveway is being updated, as well as our main entrance and the middle of the Casino floor! This phase is quite extensive, but will bring us closer to the fantastic property you deserve. We continue to praise I-5 Design/Build, Tierra Verde and their contractors for the great work they’re doing!
The front entrance has been refinished, and the old duratrans signs have been taken down. The sign on the top will be updated, also.
The Valet area’s temporary home, next to the temporary smoking tent.
The water feature has been masterfully redone, adding a lovely touch of nature to the entry side.
As the center of the Casino floor undergoes its reimagining, the soffits and ceiling ornamentation are put into place. It’s going to look fantastic!
