Turtle Creek Casino and Hotel is one of the primary draws of tourism for Traverse City in the northwestern part of Lower Michigan. The facility is located east of town within Acme and Whitewater Townships, near the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa and Horse Shows by the Bay. The facility sits along M-72 on a 200 acre parcel that inherently creates challenges for parking around the building with steep slopes starting at M-72 which drops off rapidly as you move north.
GTEC provided design and construction management services to enhance the arrival experience to the facility, as well as create a safer parking area, closer to the casino and hotel. Overall the $4.6M project was completed in two months with only landscaping and irrigation to be finished the following spring. Soon after the project was finished Turtle Creek Casino and Hotel was recognized as an outstanding project in the Grand Traverse Area due to its site improvements along the M-72 corridor.
