The Hannahville Indian Community Tribal Council has approved a $30 million expansion of the Island Resort & Casino.

The casino announced Wednesday that more than 100 new hotel rooms will be added and connected to the south end of the current 11-story Palm Tower, with three guest elevators and a lobby. A high-end dining venue and convention space are planned for the top floor. The expansion also includes a pool with water park features for kids and young adults under 18.

Island Resort management took bids for the project, Quintus 3D of Wisconsin to lead the architectural and engineering aspects of the project. Quintus 3D designed the Drift Spa, new hotel lobby and retail space at the Island Resort & Casino and also work with many Indian tribes across the country.

Gundlach Champion of Iron Mountain was chosen to oversee the construction management of the project. Gundlach built the Island hotel's Sun Tower and 1998 expansion of the casino, along with the water plant and numerous other Hannahville Indian Community projects.

The casino says engineering, design and bidding will be ongoing through spring of this year. Construction is scheduled to begin in June with expected completion during the 2021 calendar year.
