The Ilani Resort and Casino opened in April along Interstate 5, near Ridgefield.

The $510 million, 368,000-square-foot project was designed to reflect Northwest culture and honor the heritage of the Cowlitz Tribe. The building uses stone, wood and glass materials. Lighting fixtures include chandeliers made of curved art glass that overlaps likes waves. Pendant light fixtures in the lounge are designed to resemble slices of tree trunks.

Windows along the south entrance offer sweeping views.

The 100,000-square-foot gaming space includes 2,500 slot machines and 75 gaming tables. There are 15 restaurants, including a 300-seat Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse, as well as bars, shops, a 2,500-seat performance venue and parking for 3,000 vehicles.

Work also involved constructing a new I-5 overpass that required coordination with the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The tribe plans to build a 400-room hotel and parking garage in the next phase.
