Tough Rock Atlantic City will reopen to guests next Memorial Day week-end should the company’s $500 million renovation remain on schedule.
When the Trump that is former Taj opens as tough Rock Atlantic City, the resort will celebrate the genre of rock ‘n’ roll.
That is according to company officials whom say the facelift will transform the former Trump Taj Mahal property as a rock ‘n’ roll-themed casino resort.
Hard Rock, owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, purchased the shuttered Taj Mahal in March for simply $50 million, pennies on the dollar compared to what President Donald Trump paid to construct the resort in the 1980s that are late. The previous property developer and casino businessman turned politician and now president invested over $1 billion constructing the Boardwalk place.
Appearing ahead of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA), Hard Rock Global Senior VP of Design and Construction Joe Emanuele unveiled, ‘We hope to start demolition by next month and complete construction by August.’
Upping the Ante
Hard Rock had initially prepared to invest $300 million refreshing the Taj, but upon further inspection, discovered more capital was required to rid the Indian-themed décor.
‘The amount of cash we will need certainly to spend to remove dozens of minarets and all that purple,’ Hard Rock Chairman Jim Allen said month that is last. ‘Jesus! What had been we thinking?’
