Big hotel and casino project rising fast


The $200 million Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino development is rising rapidly from the desert, just a hop west across the I-10 freeway from Chandler. It will feature 242 rooms and suites, a 100,000-square-foot casino, a ballroom, meeting rooms, fitness center, business center, eight restaurants, five lounges and "Chandler's first nightclub," said Arlene Alleman, director of marketing for the Gila River Indian Community.
