$400M Snoqualmie Casino Expansion Project Begins

SNOQUALMIE, WA — Work is officially underway on an ambitious slate of expansions and renovations planned for the Snoqualmie Casino, which developers say will transform it into “an unmatched gaming and hospitality destination” for the region and add more local jobs.

Led by two Seattle-based construction firms, Cumming Group and Skanska, the $400 million project will add a new upscale, 210-room hotel to the grounds and expand the casino’s gaming floor by 11,000 square feet, with other additions including a full-service spa, fitness center, convention center, parking garage, and two new restaurants.

“The new Snoqualmie Casino expansion will provide a significant boost to the local community
through immediate job creation and will soon provide a much-needed hotel offering with new
convention, concert, and meeting spaces,” said Scott Hebert, senior project manager at
Cumming, in a statement Wednesday. “We could not be more excited to bring this caliber of resort experience to Snoqualmie.”

Developers said the first phase of the project begins with several improvements, including overhauling the valet entrance, parking facilities, and other buildings. Under an accelerated timeline, contractors are aiming to complete the project within two years, with the renovation and expansion areas encompassing an estimated 1.2 million square feet.
