Potawatomi to build $80M second hotel tower
By Josh Fisher
Potawatomi Hotel and Casino have revealed plans to expand the hotel at its Milwaukee property with the development of a second tower.

Construction is set to begin later this year pending application approval by the city of Milwaukee, according to a news release from the Forest County Potawatomi Community which owns and operates the facility.

“The Forest County Potawatomi have committed to investing in Milwaukee. This next addition is one more example of that commitment,” said Potawatomi Hotel & Casino Chief Operating Officer, Rodney Ferguson.

He added: “Aside from accommodating our guests, the project will create hundreds of jobs on the construction site and dozens of permanent positions within the hotel.”

The second tower will house 119 rooms and suites, bringing the hotel’s total number to 500. The 116m2 addition is expected to open in spring 2019.
