Osage Casino is adding on to its $160 million downtown Tulsa casino and hotel.
Today the casino broke ground on the second phase of construction with a second hotel tower.
The Tulsa location will feature an additional 145 hotel rooms.
Osage Nation Chief Geoffrey Standingbear says they hope this new tower will bring more tourism to Tulsa.
"This will attract more out of state folks and local folks to the conventions and bring them into the area and that's the driving force behind the second tower," said Osage Nation Chief Geoffrey Standingbear.
The first phase of the casino included gaming upgrades, hotel rooms, an event center and swimming pool.
