TULSA | Margaritaville at River Spirit Casino | 26 fl | Pro

Creek Nation Breaks Ground On Margaritaville Expansion At River Spirit Casino

Quote:
TULSA, Oklahoma -
Margaritaville is coming to Tulsa. The Muscogee (Creek) Nation broke ground Tuesday on a $335 million expansion of the River Spirit Casino.

The addition will bring the Jimmy Buffet brand of entertainment to Tulsa, scheduled to open in 2015. The Creek Nation says the expansion will create 800 new permanent jobs here. The addition will have a second theater, another gambling floor and, for the first time there, hotel space: a 26-story tower with almost 500 rooms.

The River Spirit Casino is already big, but phase two will more than double the size of it. The new Margaritaville Casino is a major addition to the biggest money maker the Creek Nation has ever had.

Chief George Tiger said the tribe will take the new income from the project and put it into tribal services, especially healthcare. "The vision was to help our people and do something with economic development, and I believe we've reached some of those goals," Tiger said.

A new hotel tower dominates the plan, but the whole project is closely tied to water in the river, which isn't there right now.

Yeah, we need more bullshit tower projects that are "definitely going to happen" in the next 15 years to have more threads.

As far as the tower goes, not too bad for an HKS design.

It will open by 2015, look nice by 2017 and will probably look like the bottom renders by 2020 if/when the low water dam issue is fixed and we get water in the river again instead of mud :/

Does anyone know where the new tower is going to be built in relation to the current casino? Whenever I pass the casino, I always wonder exactly where is will be.

In my last post, you can see the old spirit tower (crimson red) adjacent to the new tower. The new tower will be right behind it from the street's view

Thanks for the latest info and updates mani.

This is the best rendering that shows the entire scale:



I'll stand by and say that this is an excellent development for the area and the Tulsa region as well. It should be nothing less than a high quality getaway for folks around here that can be appreciated, and unlike the Hard Rock, this will actually be located IN Tulsa.

And the most important thing I believe this development will do is actually spur more interest in taking care of the river and actually putting water in it.

Not sure how the palms are going to survive in a 7A climate, but it's a great development.

Not sure either. The summers are usually very hot (sometimes with drought) and winters are quite cold. Tulsa experiences every kind of weather except hurricanes (we haven't had a snowstorm for several years, though).

This thread has been dead for over a month now...
But anyway, actual construction has not begun yet.

They've now started groundwork by the creek and parking garage.

This is topped out and the hotel should be open by December. It's turned out to be 318 feet tall.
