The last girder, is now 'in place' at the new Peppermill tower and convention center.
Saturday saw dignitaries, casino officials, and the construction crew hold a special ceremony to mark the occasion.
They used a giant crane, to place an Italian Cyprus tree on the top floor a common ritual in the building trade, when 'framing' is complete.
When the tower is finished in December it'll add an additional 600 rooms to the hotel-casion meaning additional work for 600 new employees.
Hotel officials commented, "We feel this convention facility and large expansion will help to attract new business that otherwise wouldn't come to the reno market."
The Peppermill started as a coffee shop, 35-years ago.
Now, it's grown to become one of the largest casino destinations, in Northern Nevada.
