Warm Mediterranean design for a classic downtown casino experience.

 

Completed in 2003, the Argosy Casino is the largest Dryvit project completed in the Kansas City area with over 160,000 square feet of Dryvit Outsulation Plus MD used.  Each exterior cladding was achieved through the use of the multitude of Dryvit finishes.  Described as one of the best exteriors of all the casinos seen across the country by an Argosy representative, the old world look has continued to age and add character over the the last thirteen years, resulting in lower exterior maintenance over the life of the building.
