The company also notes that the property will be the second closest class III casino to Los Angeles.
The project will be managed by the Penta Building Group and is anticipated to create around 2,000 jobs in construction.
After both phases of the project are finished, it is estimated to also generate about 5,000 jobs, including both full-time and part-time positions.
The property will be situated at Highway 166 and Sabodan Road West of the community of Mettler.
Hard Rock International chairman Jim Allen said: “Hard Rock is proud to partner with the Tejon Indian Tribe on creating a world-class entertainment destination.
