The Seminole Tribe of Florida and Seminole Gaming unveiled the $1.5 billion expansion of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood on Wednesday.

The project will be centered around a giant guitar-shaped, 450-foot tower. The casino will double in size and have 3,267 slot machines, 178 table games and a new 18,000-square-foot poker room, according to a press release. Hard Rock’s expansion will also include 60,000 square feet of new retail and restaurant space and a $100 million, 7,000-seat concert venue. It’s slated to open in mid-2019 ahead of the Super Bowl in 2020.

The development will add 806 guestrooms and suites, most of which will be in the guitar-shaped tower, a seven-story pool tower, restaurants, lounges, a business center and a 41,000-square-foot spa. A 10-acre pool complex with private villas and waterfalls will be built at the base of the main building.

A temporary performance hall will become a 37,000-square-foot ballroom, tripling the current meeting space and bringing the total to 141,000 square feet.
