HOCHATOWN, Okla. Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma has broken ground on Choctaw Landing, the Nation’s newest entertainment and resort development in Hochatown, Okla.

The Nation plans to invest $238 million on the project and will create more than 400 new jobs.

Choctaw Landing was designed to be part of the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape with a goal to keep as many of the native trees and plants intact as possible. The four-story, 200,000-square-foot entertainment destination will feature 100 hotel rooms, 600 slot machines, eight table games, several restaurants and bars, a pool, an outdoor venue with an amphitheater, beer garden, and a family-friendly game zone. In addition to the new resort, a 12,000-square-foot mercantile will adjoin Choctaw Landing with a small grocery store and market, three dining options, and a fuel station with 24 pumps.

Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Chief Gary Batton led the ground-breaking ceremony and was joined by city officials, tribal council members, multiple gaming industry professionals, community members, and associates.

“At the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, our goal is to continue to provide for our fellow tribal members, families, and our community,” says Batton. “Choctaw Landing will provide significant opportunities for local residents and the future availability and quality of this hotel will not only attract business, but tourism opportunities for Choctaw Nation Reservation in southeast Oklahoma.”

Manhattan Construction Company and JCJ Architecture are the lead partners for Choctaw Landing and have worked with the the nation on large hospitality and gaming projects.

According to a media release, the name signifies guests have arrived at a place that feels like home and will be a special spot for visitors to touch base and recharge for their next adventure. The design of the mercantile and the resort will reflect the tribe’s culture and the property will include their history and display art created by tribal members. Choctaw Landing will open in late 2023.
