Casino Del Sol Picks Firm for Expansion

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe’s Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona plans to expand its 213,000-square-foot casino, and has selected architecture firm Leo A Daly to design the property’s new additions.

Leo A Daly also designed the existing casino, and will add a 10-story hotel, conference center, parking garage, laundry facility and warehouse to the property. The design is distinctly Mediterranean, with desert influences taken from the casino’s surrounding environment.

“The Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Sol Casinos are very excited about this new phase of our facility, and we are thrilled to have the Leo A Daly design team and McCarthy Construction working with us on the project,” said Sol Casinos CEO Wendell Long. “They were involved in the original design and construction of Casino del Sol, and are helping us take our ideas and concepts forward to transform our vision into reality.”
