Tioga Downs Casino & Resort celebrated the grand opening of the expansion project in Nichols, NY. The hotel, amenity, casino and office expansion is anchored by a six-story, 84,000 square foot hotel and marks the transition of Tioga Downs into a full-service destination resort.
In addition to the 161-room hotel, a two-story 57,000-square foot amenity podium adjacent to the existing casino building will have two outdoor spaces, totaling an additional 23,500 SF. Visitors can also expect to see a 17,400-square foot expansion to the casino and a second-floor vertical extension for offices. Additionally, The Harman Group designed a new 3½-level post-tensioned parking structure that supports 300 cars.
The Harman Group provided structural engineering and parking planning and design services for this project. The architect was Climans Green Liang Architects, Inc. and the construction manager was LP Ciminelli, Inc.
“We are thrilled to be part of the expansion of Tioga Downs Casino & Resort,” said Jason Squitiere, Associate and Project Manager at The Harman Group. “The hotel and amenity additions transform the existing casino into a full-service resort destination.”
The hotel expansion is an incentive for their customers to utilize the amenities for an extended stay, while attracting new clientele. Ground was broken on the hotel after Tioga Downs was awarded their full gaming license in September 2016. The grand opening of the expansion took place on December 1.
