PCI Gaming Authority (PCIGA), the gaming enterprise owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, announced the project at a press conference on the building site today where construction has already begun on Wind Creek Wetumpka. It is slated to open in May of next year.
"We have set very high standards for our Wind Creek Casino and Hotel brand," noted Jay Dorris, President of PCIGA, in an announcement. "This is one of the most beautiful settings imaginable for this kind of first-class resort, and we want it to offer the same kind of quality experience that people have come to expect from Wind Creek in Atmore, which is one of the few hotels in our state with a Four Diamond rating."
The new resort will include a 20-story hotel tower with 285 rooms and suites, all of which will overlook the Coosa River. The property will feature a 90,000 square foot gaming floor with more than 2,500 electronic gaming machines, a resort pool, and entertainment rooms suitable for large parties and corporate events.
Wind Creek Wetumpka will also feature a number of dining choices including a grill, a coffee shop, a snack bar, a fine dining restaurant, and a buffet.
The architect for the project is Hnedak Bobo Group and Flintco Construction is the general contractor.
