Big Plans Underway For New Tower At Durant Casino

Posted:

DURANT, OK -- Plans are underway for major expansion to the Choctaw Casino, as officials work on a new 22-story hotel tower.

Casino officials this week presented the plans the Durant Economic Development Council. The expansion, which includes a new movie theater, would require part of the existing buildings to be demolished, Durant Industrial Authority executive director Tommy Kramer said.

The new tower stands much taller than the current one in a drawing shown at the meeting, a photo in the Durant Daily Democrat showed.

Construction is expected to start next month and the Choctaw Nation plans to announce more details on the expansion in about two weeks.
