Hard Rock Hotel Casino to Build in Kern County

Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is proposing to build at $600-million dollar, 400-room hotel/casino/resort.The development is slated for a now rural area around the 99 Freeway and Route 166. The development would include pools, around a dozen bars, and an entertainment venue. The proposal would need to undergo federal and environmental review. Because of that, the developer says it appears we are more than a year away from groundbreaking, with construction slated to take roughly two years. The resort will be owned by the Tejon Native American tribe and operated by Hard Rock Hotels.
