The Soboba Casino Resort is continuing to progress as level six of the hotel adds headboards and bed frames to its rooms and the back-of-house operations is accepting regular deliveries of furniture, fixtures and equipment.
Irrigation is done and landscaping has begun in the parking lot area and around the pool. Asphalt has been completed on some of the land and grading is being done to finish the last two sections. Finishing work is ongoing with millwork and flooring still being worked on.
Concrete and tiling around the pool is being done and an "owners' punch walk" takes place this week. That will lead to a final inspection and any corrections for finishes that need to be resolved.
Lifestyles Landscaping have installed quite a few palm trees and, along with other trees and plants now that the sprinklers have been installed and are working great.
Inside the replacement casino, the look of natural wood and bark treatments throughout lends itself to a rustic feel.
With the final "bones" being put in place, construction on the Soboba Casino replacement project is moving inward. Along with the final touches on the steel framing, workers have also been installing all the utility "guts" so the infrastructure is solid.
Conduit and power sources are being installed underground with connections to upper levels being built. The frame of the resort’s six-story hotel is evident at the southeast corner of the site.
"Tom (Groenendal of CW Driver) is working from above, below and both sides all at once," said Arif Siddique, President and Managing Member of Sicon, LLC. "The grading is nearly completed and the location for the 8,300 sq.ft. pool has been finalized."
The pool area, which includes a grassy area for events, will have a transparent barrier separating it from the golf course to offer a spectacular view for guests.
Soboba Casino General Manager Scott Sirois, an avid golfer, said one of the primary amenities he is looking forward to is the addition of a Signature Island green on the redesigned golf course. The course has been designed by Cary Bickler, the renowned golf course architect who did the original redesign when the Tribe acquired the golf course. The new island green will be the centerpiece of view enhancement from the replacement casino.
