Starting up a thread for the Potawatomi Bingo Casino Hotel in Milwaukee which got approved on Wednesday, April 11, 2012. Construction set to start in Summer 2012. Completion slated for 2014.

Nice, but Boatnurd you should inform us that the first rendering you posted is a conception rendering and that there is a much better updated one with the final design. Your second rendering shows the final one though.

Thanks Paule, good catch. I just corrected it.

The Minnesota architectural firm misspelled 'Potawatomi' (signage on top of building); let's hope they catch the error before the two story letters are ordered and installed. Milwaukee-based Rinka Chung Architecture would have designed a spectacular building and spelled the tribe's name correctly. :lol:

It looks right to me? Am I dyslexic or something?

We just have to make sure there isnt a secret elevator that goes to the Tenth Floor when its under construction Ala "The Killing" :lol: where secret deals are made over looking the city.....

Looks good. Hopefully the people who come up to Milwaukee to lose some money to the Casino spend it at other local institutions.

I have switched threads to the new one with a u/c. So use that one for any new updates on the Potawatomi Bingo Casino Hotel.

We can just request that the mods change the title of this thread. It's what they've done in the past.

Glad to see that construction is underway on this one though. Can't wait to see it rise.

I am not sure, I havn't been to that side of Milwaukee in a while. Does anyone know if the pre-construction utility work on and around the site is done, and if any digging for the foundation itself has started? The digging, foundation work and the initial rising of the steel or concrete tend to be my favorite part of any construction project. This project has been pretty low key for such a high traffic and visible location.
