Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Citizens and key members of the Four Winds Casinos executive team marked a major milestone for the new 23-story hotel that’s being built at the South Bend location.
On Tuesday, people signed the final steel beam that will be place atop the tower.
“It was really historic to be able to be a part of today’s event, the steel topping of this amazing project,” remarked Chairwoman Rebecca Richards.
The ceremony was also meaningful for Four Winds Casinos Chief Operating Officer Frank Freedman. “This project’s many years in the making, so to get to this point where we’re actually signing the last piece of – you know, the last beam that’s gonna get put in place, it marks a tremendous occasion for all of us…” said Freedman.
