The Enterprise broke ground in April on a new Desert Diamond Casino facility near Glendale.
The property for the new facility is on 80 acres of reservation land in unincorporated Maricopa County, west of Glendale.
Situated near Loop 303 and Northern Parkway, the new facility’s first phase will feature a 184,000-square-foot casino floor with 900 Class III slot machines, a poker room, retail sportsbook, and table games including blackjack, craps, roulette, and baccarat, as well as dining and other amenities.
Construction during the initial stage will include a parking structure and surface parking with 3,400 spaces. Construction of this $450 million project is expected to last approximately 19 months.
