Quapaw Nation To Break Ground On $350 Million Gaming, Hotel Complex

Nearly two months after the Arkansas Racing Commission unanimously approved a gaming license for the Quapaw Nation of Oklahoma in Pine Bluff, the business partnership for the Indian tribe and host of dignitaries will break ground Monday on the $350 million gaming complex in Jefferson County.

Based on the original blueprints from Quapaw Nation’s Downstream Development Authority LLC, the Saracen Casino Resort will include 570,000 square feet of construction on 110 acres, including an 80,000 square-foot gaming floor, 300-room hotel, convention center and entertainment venue. Quapaw Nation officials have said the construction stage will produce more than 1,000 construction jobs, which is expected to take place over 18 months.       MORE
