Island View Casino Resort
A massive renovation and construction project to convert the former Oasis Hotel into the City of Gulfport’s first land-based casino. Phase I of this resort featured a completely renovated seven-story, 560-room hotel. The first floor was converted into gaming space, a 350-seat buffet, retail shops and operation facilities. Phase II was to build a new 100,000 sf structural steel expansion to the casino. Amenities in the addition include two fine dining restaurants and a center bar. In Phase III, a new four-story, 658-space concrete parking garage with a connector and a new entrance was added. The first three phases were completed in 16 months. Phase IV was to completely renovate the beach-side tower – a 17-floor, 405-room luxury hotel. The facade was updated and now features a graphic cityscape. This hotel showcases 14,000 sf of convention space, two restaurants, spa, fitness center, retail areas, and an outdoor saltwater pool with a swim-up bar, large sundeck and direct beach access.
