150,000-sq.-ft. tribal casino on 50-acre Tacoma site

The Anchorage Daily News reported yesterday that an Anchorage company – WH Pacific – has "won a contract with the Puyallup Tribe to work on the tribe’s new casino in Tacoma, Wash."

Under the contract, the story said, the company will provide master planning and architectural/engineering design services for "a 150,000-square-foot casino on a 50-acre site along Interstate 5."

A 150,000-square-foot casino on a 50-acre site is a big deal. In fact, I received a press release on this a week ago and called Puyallup Tribe spokesman John Weymer. He said there were errors in the report, and that someone from the engineering firm would be in touch with me. The fellow never called.

I’ll be checking on this next week. Stay tuned.
