Intense Rock Atlantic City will reopen to guests next Memorial Day weekend should the business’s $500 million renovation stay on schedule.
When the former Trump Taj Mahal opens as Hard 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 home 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 in comparison to what President Donald Trump paid to create 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 location.
Showing up prior to the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA), tricky Rock Overseas Senior VP of Design and Construction Joe Emanuele revealed, ‘We wish to start demolition by the following month and full construction by August.’
Upping the Ante
Tough Rock had initially planned to invest $300 million refreshing the Taj, but upon further inspection, knew more capital was required to rid the Indian-themed décor.
‘The amount of cash we will need to spend to remove dozens of minarets and all that purple,’ Hard Rock Chairman Jim Allen stated final thirty days. ‘Jesus! What were we thinking?’
