Osage Casinos officials have released renderings and details for its $60m new property in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri.
The latest retail property is part of a new entertainment district located within Missouri, announced last year by the Osage Nation, and is expected to be completed in “multiple phases” with an estimated $60m investment within the region.
Osage Chief, Geoffrey Standing Bear, explained: “We look forward to collaborative work with the local community and state of Missouri. We will provide positive economic benefits to the Osage people, as well as those who reside on Osage ancestral lands.”
The planned property includes a casino, hotel, meeting space and event centre, among other amenities.
“We are thrilled to release these renderings to Osage Nation members in a time when Chief Standing Bear is conducting monumental cultural efforts in our ancestral lands,” added Byron Bighorse, CEO of Osage Casinos.
“Our casino has been nationally recognised for providing world-class gaming, and we are excited to bring this opportunity to Lake of the Ozarks.”
The first phase of the process, set to start upon approval from the department of interior, is said to include construction of a casino, sports bar, restaurant, and meeting space. Moreover, it is set to incorporate a hotel, which will have general hotel rooms, suites, a fitness and exercise facility, a pool and hot tub, and pool bar.
Future amenities include more casino space, additional food and beverage options, meeting space and an event centre.
