When the big game comes to town in February, Mystic Lake Center will offer the newest hotel rooms and event space in the Twin Cities. Showcasing a modern, natural design, the 70,000-square-foot meeting and event space is the newest addition to Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. Owned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) and located 25 miles southwest of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Mystic Lake Center is set to open in early January 2018. Upon completion, Mystic Lake Casino Hotel will be the second-largest hotel in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, with 766 total rooms.
“We have so many exciting things happening at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel, and all just in time for the big game in Minneapolis in February,” said Angela Heikes, president and CEO of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community’s Gaming Enterprise. “The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community is committed to creating a first-class experience for everyone who visits the Community. Mystic Lake Center is a stunning example of that commitment.”
The SMSC’s government, Gaming Enterprise, and various other enterprises are collectively the largest employer in Scott County. Mystic Lake Center is responsible for creating hundreds of construction jobs, with approximately 400 construction workers on site each day. When complete, Mystic Lake Center will add 120 new permanent jobs to the Gaming Enterprise. To date, Native American employees have accounted for more than 25 percent of the total construction hours for Mystic Lake Center. The project is led by PCL Construction Services, Inc.
The design of Mystic Lake Center is inspired by Minnesota’s natural scenery. The center features wall décor and lighting that reflects the colors of the seasons, textured carpet in blue and gray tones depicting the movement of a flowing river, custom chandeliers with a water drop design, and lots of natural light. The center’s western façade will feature more than 11,000 square feet of dynamic SageGlass with state-of-the-art electrochromic technology that reacts to sunlight, preventing glare and heat gain without the need for blinds or solar controls.
“Floor to ceiling SageGlass will provide uncompromised views of the surrounding scenery,” said Alan McLenaghan, CEO of SageGlass. “We are proud to provide this Minnesota project with the foremost solution for solar control and give guests a dynamic, comfortable experience.”
