Sky Dancer Casino and Resort
Belcourt, North Dakota
Shingobee completed a 120,000-square-foot expansion and 38,000-square-foot renovation of the Sky Dancer Casino and Hotel in 2013, for the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians in Belcourt, North Dakota.
Designed by DSGW Architects First American Design Studio (North St. Paul, MN), the $31 million expansion includes a 100-room hotel tower and a significant expansion and reorganization of the gaming floor. The existing casino building was transformed into an events center capable of hosting concert events, conventions, and community events.
The casino expansion created 75-100 new jobs and improved economic success for the Tribe. An increase in gaming opportunities, more hotel rooms, and much-improved guest amenities were the goals for the addition and renovation of the Sky Dancer Casino & Resort’s facilities.
The new Casino and Hotel opened for business on schedule on November 1, 2012. Work continued on the renovation of the previous casino building through early summer 2013.
