The Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians is breaking ground on a new gaming development in southern California, Valley News reports.

The facility will replace the existing Soboba Casino. It's located on a portion of a 410-acre site that was placed into trust by the Bureau of Indian Affairs in June 2015.

Plans call for a 200-room hotel, 2,000 slot machines, 24 table games, a spa/fitness center, a 15,000 square-foot conference and event space, six food outlets and a pool and sports bar, according to the tribe. An opening date hasn't yet been reported.

Renderings and conceptual videos can be found on the tribe's website.
