Ground Breaking Image

Construction Has Begun





The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation broke ground on a new CASINO on June 29, 2018. Those in attendance included tribal members and dignitaries from the State of Arizona and surrounding communities.

The new casino will be 166,341 square feet, which will soon offer guests a larger casino with a garden court, specialty high end dining, Sports bar with entertainment stage and other new amenities. Thalden Boyd Emery Architects, W.E. O’Neil, and Kitchell Construction have been named as the project team.

The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation’s ongoing mission is to aid in the economic development and the expansion of direct services to meet the changing needs of all tribal members while preserving traditional values and at the same time benefiting and supporting its neighbors, the greater East Valley and Scottsdale areas.

“We break ground on Friday, June 29th 2018 on a new casino and open a new chapter in the modern history of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. Our tribe has overcome many challenges just to be here today. Our path has been difficult, but the obstacles we’ve endured have only made us stronger. We may be the smallest tribe in the Valley, but we built the first high stakes bingo hall in the Phoenix area three decades ago and today we are taking another huge leap forward. This exciting project will set a new standard for quality entertainment in the Northeast Valley while providing economic security to our tribal government. We’re thankful that our past success enables us to make this investment in the future of our tribe and our region,” said Bernadine Burnette, Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation Tribal Council President.

Construction will begin late summer and is expected to be complete and open to the public by spring 2020.
