BILOXI — The Biloxi Planning Commission has approved the $150 million renovation plans for Golden Nugget Biloxi casino resort.
The Sun Herald reports the proposal now goes to the city council.
Officials say the sale of the Isle Casino to Landry’s Golden Nugget is expected by August but the property won’t be re-branded until all the construction and renovation are complete.
The two additions will expand the casino floor to 46,200 square feet and add a 16,100-square-foot showroom.
The renovations will restore what was lost during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The Golden Nugget will have 19,200 square feet of convention space, along with new shops, restaurants and a spa that is four times larger than the current size.
Officials say all 720 existing hotel rooms will be renovated in stages.
