Saginaw Chippewa Tribe undertakes $26.5 million renovation of main casino

The Saginaw Chippewa Tribe will break ground in January 2018 on a $26.5 million renovation at its flagship casino in Michigan.

The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort will see a new sports bar and night club, along with new gaming and lounge areas, according to a press release. Updates to the entertainment hall and family-friendly arcade are also in the works.

Once construction begins, work will take place in seven phases, the tribe said. The project is expected to be complete by the fall of 2018.

"This major renovation project will be one of the largest investments that Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort’s guests have seen since the grand opening back in 1998," the press release stated.

In June, the tribe broke ground on an expansion at the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino, a smaller facility in Standish. The project includes a 148-room hotel.
