Golden Moon Hotel and Casino
Begins To Take Nautilus Shape

CHOCTAW RESERVATION, MS - The first of 26 elevated concrete slabs was recently poured to begin revealing the dynamic design of The Golden Moon Hotel and Casino.

The hotel, expected to open in late 2002, is part of the Pearl River Resort, which will represent a nearly $750 million family vacation destination in Neshoba County, MS.

The Golden Moon, designed by Miami-based Arquitectonica, will be a classic flowing structure that starts low at one end, winds around the casino area and gradually peaks with a brightly lit moon-like sphere that will sit 310 feet above ground level and can be seen for miles. Cascading curtains of water will surround the outside base of the building.

The property will soar 30-stories above the Mississippi landscape, span approximately 840,000 square feet, feature 572 guest rooms, a health spa, restaurants, bars and other entertainment options. The 90,000 square foot casino floor will offer 24-hour Las Vegas-style gaming, including the latest in slots, table games and poker.

Slidell, LA-based Baker Concrete is responsible for the estimated 30,000 cubic yards of concrete needed to complete the superstructure. The elevated slabs will be poured over approximately nine to 10 months and will require more than 3,700 truckloads of cement. Baker will use sophisticated laser technology to ensure that each 8-inch thick slab is level.

Pearl River Resort, the only resort development of its kind on an Indian reservation, will be a world-class gaming and entertainment destination featuring deluxe accommodations, Las Vegas-style gaming, exciting shows and attractions, a recreational lake, award-winning golf and a full range of resort services.

The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians owns and operates a portfolio of 15 manufacturing, service, retail and tourism enterprises, the success of which has facilitated self-reliance and astounding growth for its members, while also providing an economic boost to the communities surrounding the reservation.


Australia's Crown Casino
Gets Approval for Second Tower

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - /Bloomberg/ - The Crown Casino, Australia's largest, has received approval May 29 from the Victorian government to build a second high-rise building, the Australian Financial review reported.

The original plan was to build two matching 30-floor towers at the casino. The casino will now build a smaller 25-story tower behind the existing one.

The new tower is expected to cost $76 million and will contain a four-star hotel with 450 rooms, a conference center, a bar and a brasserie.

Plans to build the second tower were discarded in 1998 when the then Crown owner Hudson Conway Ltd., which was later acquired by Sydney-based Publishing and Broadcasting Ltd, announced it could not afford to build the high-rise.
