Jamestown, CA – Earlier this year, Chicken Ranch Rancheria Me-Wuk Indians of California unveiled their plans for the new Chicken Ranch Casino Resort. This month, site work for this state-of-the-art property began. Slated to open in late 2023, this ground up property, located near the Casino’s current location, will be the very first of its kind in the area.

While many details of the project are yet to be announced, the community and guests traveling to the nearby Yosemite National Park, can anticipate a new spectacular Casino Resort experience.  Unparalleled views are infused throughout the entire design, and highlighted from Casino floor, 190 key 9-story Hotel, 9,600 sf Convention Center, and many world-class resort-style amenities that are sure to attract local guests and travelers alike.  Chicken Ranch Casino & Resort will be the premier destination for leisurely travel, corporate events, and memorable celebrations. During the construction of the new project, the current Chicken Ranch Casino will still be available for their guests and travelers.

The team at WORTHGROUP Architects & Designers is known for their interpretive, discovery-based design approach.  Integrating our Client’s unique culture and heritage into each project entrusted to our team, the resulting design solutions are bespoke and timeless. Through community engagement and Tribal leadership workshops, the vision of this Casino Resort project came to life incorporating many design elements that gracefully weave the past into the present, while respecting and honoring the land.  The entire team for the Chicken Ranch Casino Resort property has created one of the most iconic design stories yet to be experienced.

Sharing some of the inspiration for the design below is Bryan Hamlin, Partner and Chief Design Officer of WORTHGROUP. “It is a privilege to learn the unique culture of each Client, and perhaps one of the most rewarding aspects of my career, is being invited to listen to their stories, teachings, and history, transforming those words into meaningful and interpretive design that continues to serve the Tribe and its community for many years to come. It truly is remarkable to be a part of something much larger, connecting the past to the present.” -Bryan Hamlin, Partner | Chief Design Officer of WORTHGROUP.
