While construction continues for Montreign Resort Casino, another big project is underway nearby in the Town of Thompson. The Veria Lifestyle Wellness Resort is being built on a 300-acre parcel just off Anawana Lake Road, on the site of the old Kutsher’s Hotel & Country Club.
The $90 million project will feature a 68,000-square-foot wellness center with a spa, yoga and fitness center, nutrition center, 36 massage rooms, salon, exterior amphitheater, and 131 lakeview guest rooms.
In June of 2015, more than 200 people welcomed entrepreneur Dr. Subhash Chandra and other leaders of Z Living/Veria Lifestyle for the official groundbreaking of this extraordinary wellness project, currently on pace for a 2017 grand opening.
“We’re excited about it,” said Thompson Town Supervisor William Rieber. “We think it’s going to bring a whole different stream of customers to the area.”
This massive development project is expected to create new and permanent jobs, as well as a new stream of business to local vendors, suppliers, and service providers. In addition, the project is expected to generate additional tax dollars for the local schools and community.
