Artwork provided by Metcalf Builders Inc. The Ormsby House, shown here in this artist's rendering, will have 167 rooms, a casino and several restaurants. Minor changes have been made since this artwork was done. Co-owner Allan Fiegehen said the low-rise will be a darker shade.
Caged in steel scaffolding and crawling with workers, the Ormsby House is starting to look a little like the dream hotel promised by the owners. Brick details have been added to the concrete pillars on the portecochere. Some painting and plastering have been done, which gives a clue to what is in store.
