WATCH NOW: Work Progresses On Tulsa River Spirit Casino Complex
TULSA, Oklahoma - Construction continues on the Muscogee Creek Nation River Spirit Hotel and Casino at 81st and Riverside Drive in Tulsa.
The complex is growing, though much of the new development is hard to see from the road as it's on the west side of the existing structures. That didn't stop Osage SkyNews 6 HD from flying over the gaming, hotel and entertainment venue Thursday morning.
The hotel tower is 27 stories with 483 rooms. It boasts 55,000 square-feet of exterior glass and was built with 6,000 truck loads of concrete.
The Muscogee Creek Nation website says it will have an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, spa and several restaurants including a Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse.
The Creek Nation has added 1.2 million square-feet of new development including the new concert hall and convention center that features 2,500 seats.
"It doesn't look like there'll be a bad seat in the house," pilot Will Kavanagh said Thursday morning.
The Margaritaville themed bar has been open for several months. The casino and restaurants are expected to open in September with the hotel scheduled for completion in December, 2016.
