The Seneca Nation of New York will be joined by Buffalo Mayor Byron W. Brown and leaders of the casino company this afternoon for a ceremonial “topping-off,” as the steel frame of the building reaches its apex, according to The Buffalo News.

On January 14, leaders from the Seneca Nation and Seneca Gaming Corporation, joined representatives from the business and construction communities, elected officials, and others in kicking off the project with an official groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a 28,500-square-foot addition. The expansion will increase the existing casino by more than 42 percent to 95,500-square-feet on the South Park Avenue side of the complex, and feature additional retail, restaurant, and gaming space.

HBG also designed the phase I casino project for the Seneca Nation.
