The resort in Aurora will have 1,500 rooms and nearly 500,000 square feet in meeting space when the project is complete. Staff selling bookings for the property before it opens say they have created a new experience for groups and conventions coming to Colorado.

Construction should be complete later this year with the first groups set to begin using the resort in February 2019.

Some of the features that will keep guests at the resort include an indoor and outdoor pool that can hold 1,200 people at once. It will also have a 40 feet tall water slide. Inside the Great Hall, there will be a vintage railroad caboose from the Santa Fe line that operated in Colorado. There will also be a lake and waterfall.
