Seminole Hard Rock Tops Off Events Expansion




The new Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood in Florida celebrated a topping-off ceremony for its $1.5 billion expansion this week, marking a major construction milestone in a project that’s set to bring 120,000 square feet of meeting and convention space to the property. 

The venture adds hotel rooms, gaming space, dining and nightlife outlets, a full service spa, three distinct pool experiences, a new retail promenade, a 6,500-seat Hard Rock Live entertainment venue and meeting and convention space to the existing property footprint. It is slated for a fall 2019 opening.

In keeping with tradition, the final steel beam of the project was ceremonially hoisted and set atop the giant framework of the structure. The long-standing custom, attributed to the ancient Scandinavian ritual of placing a tree on the top of a newly completed building, celebrates the construction efforts and crews that are involved with the project. 

The beam itself was transported to the Seminole Tribe’s Brighton, Immokalee, Big Cypress and Hollywood Reservations over the past month to allow members of the Tribal community throughout Florida the chance to sign it as a way to share in the celebration. The onsite construction teams also had the opportunity to leave their signatures on the beam, as a proud representation of their individual efforts on the project.

Other highlights of the expansion project include a 38,000 square foot exhibition hall, 21,000 square feet of new retail space and 21,000 square feet of nightlife, as well as 30 new restaurants, lounges and bars.
