"The beams are steadily climbing as more than 100 construction workers develop the 497-room casino resort and spa on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community adjacent to Scottsdale.

"The foundation of the new casino is completed and the outer steel structure, currently at the second-story level, should be finished by late fall, said Russ Burbank, Casino Arizona senior vice president of operations.

"Once the exterior is finished, twice as many workers will begin to build the interior of the resort, which will offer more than 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor conference space, including a 24,000-square-foot grand ballroom, 21 meeting rooms and full-service catering.

"The new casino will also include a 240,000-square-foot gambling and entertainment venue.

"The resort and casino is expected to open in 2010..."
