Kansas Casino Company Seeks to Build 4-Story Hotel

KSAL StaffJuly 29, 2015

Investors developing a state-owned gambling casino in southeast Kansas are seeking permission to build a four-story hotel.

While area zoning restrictions limit buildings to 35 feet, or three stories, developers of the Kansas Crossing Casino & Hotel are planning to build a four-story, 123-room Hampton Inn & Suites.

The Joplin Globe reports the Pittsburg Board of Zoning Appeals is scheduled to vote on the request Monday.

Work on the $70.2 million casino site near the junction of U.S. Highways 69 and 400 started soon after the project was recently approved by the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission.

Developers say the casino site is expected to have 625 slot machines and 16 gambling tables and attract about 500,000 visitors a year.
