Commercial Development Update: Silverton Casino Hotel is planning a new mixed use development project located on the commercial parcel at the entrance to the facility. The first phase of the project will include a major brand 110 all room all-suite hotel connected to a new casino to be designed and operated by Silverton. The casino will include over 200 slots, 5 table games, a sports book and café. In addition there will be restaurant and retail opportunities on individual parcels fronting Highway 160. Future phases planned at the project include a large retail, entertainment, restaurant and movie theatre district. The project is expected to break ground in the Fall of 2018.
Joel Oscarson, Director of Strategic Development, reports we are steadily moving forward with the purchase of the land adjacent to the track from the Bureau of Land Management. Joel notes, “The land is nearly 630 acres and located directly to the north and east of the facility. The small section of land connecting the northern and eastern parcels is of great strategic value due to the connectivity of the two vital areas of the property. That section must be configured to mitigate an issue with the West Wide Energy Corridor (WWEC); therefore the parcel was designed to support the land release to submit to the BLM. The process of purchasing the land has begun and we have been given approximately 9 -12 months to close on the property. Delegates from both sides of party lines are involved with us to acquire the property to continue growth here at Spring Mountain.”
