Officials at Mount Airy Casino Resort in Mount Pocono have broken ground on a $5 million luxury indoor/outdoor swimming pool project.
The building of the project, called "Get Wet," will provide between 75 to 100 construction-related jobs, according to CECO Associates, the project's engineering firm.
Once completed, the pool area will employ about 20 additional full-time Mount Airy employees including but not limited to food and beverage servers, maintenance workers and entertainment personnel.
The 11,000-square-foot four-season pool will feature a passage allowing guests to swim continuously from indoors to outdoors. Other highlights of the 52,000-square-foot project include: a poolside bar and lounge area offering light dining as well as after-dark entertainment options; private luxury cabanas with day beds and television sets; a heated spa conjoining the pool and an assortment of water features and sculptures; and a 5,600-square-foot outdoor deck area with table-side fire pits and expansive views of the resort's lake and golf course.
