Further Details about Biloxi Hotel and Casino Surface

The $1.2 billion resort in Biloxi was until recently only a concept, but the UMUSIC Broadwater hotel and casino is now heading for reality following a further reveal of project-related details on Thursday.

Mayor Andrew Gilich held a press conference at the Biloxi Visitors Center fleshing out details about the project and its expected economic impact on the city. According to Gilich, the project should pull 2 million people to the city yearly.

Detailing the concept, Dakia Global U-Ventures, the company to carry out work on the project, argued that construction could begin in 2021 and should be finalized by late 2023 at the outside. According to Robert Lavia, chairman of the music company, the project will feature a number of amenities.

For starters, it will lead to 2,500 new jobs and 1,150 hotel rooms. There will be 1,000 construction jobs available as well as various entertainment venues. Outlining further details, Lavia said that people would be “wowed” whenever they took a look at the project.

A special 12,000-seat entertainment venue will arrive in the middle of the hotel. The facility will have a glass dome that can resist winds of up to 160 miles per hour. Commenting on their choice of venue, UMUSIC pointed to the rich music culture in the region and specifically Mississippi.
