New casino building slated for Kingston

A Kitsap Peninsula tribe broke ground Monday for a major new building to replace its existing casino at Kingston.

The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe is building a 52,000-square-foot structure that will augment the existing Point Casino at Kingston on the northeastern end of the Kitsap Peninsula.

When the new building opens in the first half of 2012, the 20,000-square-foot existing casino building will be repurposed as office space and casino backup space.

The casino expects to hire about 60-80 more casino workers, the tribe said.

The general contractor for the new casino project is Lonestar/KHS&S, a joint venture.
