A development group that wants to build a $225 million casino and hotel at the Des Moines airport says the project would help pay for a planned new terminal.

Highview Development Group presented the plan to the Des Moines Airport Authority board on Tuesday. The complex would include a 350-room hotel connected to the airport by a skywalk. There also would be a fountain, rock garden, restaurant and wedding and banquet facilities.

The airport board tabled discussion of the proposal until its February meeting. Officials have been seeking $194 million from various sources to cover the $500 million airport project.
