ElvisGraceland is to be renovated.

The late icon’s former home was turned into a museum after his death and is now to undergo a $137 million (£106,038,000) expansion.

A 200,000 square foot entertainment complex is to be built across the street from Graceland. It will house a 450 room hotel, which is set to open on October 27, as Billboard reports.

The Memphis-based attraction will also include exhibits focusing on Elvis’ life and highlights from his career in music and film. A car museum, restaurant and memorabilia shops will also feature on the site.

The new building will replace the current one and is set to be finished by spring 2017.
