The groundbreaking ceremony has taken place to mark the start of the development of the $600 million Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tejon. Representatives from the Tejon Indian Tribe and Hard Rock International met for the event in Mettler, California. Local and statewide community leaders were also in attendance.

It is hoped that the casino can open its doors in autumn 2025. Around 2,000 construction jobs will be created, with around 5,000 people directly or indirectly employed when the new estate opens. The first phase of the project will last approximately 22 months and will include the development of numerous restaurants.

The facility will cover 700,000 square meters, with the gaming area taking up approximately 21% of the total area. It will contain 2,500 slot machines and 48 table games. The second phase will add a 400-room hotel, spa, pool and live events venue.

homeless for over 150 years

This new casino resort became possible after California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a treaty with the Tejon Indian Tribe last year. Through this agreement, 320 acres of land were granted to the tribe, which had been without a homeland for over 150 years. It built on the announcement in 2019 that the tribe intended to pursue a casino project in collaboration with Hard Rock International.
