The Ho-Chunk Nation recognized the need to reinvest in their Wisconsin gaming properties to better meet the needs of their patrons and create gaming destinations that will generate pride within the Nation, create opportunity and economic stability, and support state tourism.
Extensive exterior improvements, including façade upgrades and the addition of porte-cocheres for the various locations, expanded parking, and site upgrades will be incorporated. The design and construction will ultimately connect the projects together in order to represent the Ho-Chunk brand, incorporating unique features to connect each design to its unique location.
