(Kings Mountain).- Construction will begin on June 7 for the new permanent casino resort in Kings Mountain, the Catawba Nation said on Friday. The groundbreaking of Two Kings Casino had been delayed due to a lawsuit between the Catawba Nation and the former casino developer over the ground lease for the land.

The Catawba Nation settled with Sky Boat Gaming in May for an unknown amount. 

“We persevered to achieve a fair deal so that we can now realize the full financial and economic benefits of the project for Catawba Nation members and residents of Cleveland County,” Catawba Nation Chief Brian Harris wrote in a news release.

“The establishment of this casino is not just about bricks and mortar; it symbolizes our commitment to preserving our tribal identity, supporting our community and creating opportunities for our people. This project will not only generate revenue for our tribe but also provide jobs, education and social programs that will benefit our members and the surrounding region. These jobs, including construction jobs, along with increased patron traffic, will provide local governments and the state of North Carolina with additional tax revenue and other investments under our compact. The Catawba are working to keep casino revenue in North Carolina as opposed to what outside commercial casino companies would do."

The casino has other impacts to the area, including the expansion of the Dixon School Road Bridge over Interstate 85 to accommodate increased traffic and the installation of new sewer lines.

It will take two phases to complete the permanent structure, the first of which is expected to be finished in early 2026. The $700-million project is expected to create 2,000 new jobs when it's done.
