There are actually three casinos in Detroit- Windsor region. These casinos are mostly owned by the Sault Tribe, Chippewa Indians. Greektown is run by Millennium Management Group. The casino opened on November 11, 2000. To make way for the casino- hotel a parking garage had to be demolished. The hotel came six years after the casino, with construction beginning in June of 2006. The hotel has 30 floors. A new structure opened in 2007 as part of the hotel- casino that was a 13 story, 3,500 parking space parking garage. Eventually in 2008 more space was needed, so 100,000 square feet was added.
