Complex Rock Atlantic City will reopen to guests next Memorial Day week-end should the company’s $500 million renovation stay on schedule.
When the Trump that is former Taj opens as tricky Rock Atlantic City, the resort will celebrate the genre of rock ‘n’ roll.
That is in accordance with company officials whom say the facelift will transform the Trump that is former Taj 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 just $50 million, pennies on the dollar in comparison to what President Donald Trump paid to create the resort in the late 1980s. The previous real estate developer and casino businessman turned politician and now president spent over $1 billion constructing the Boardwalk venue.
Appearing before the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA), tricky Rock Overseas Senior VP of Design and Construction Joe Emanuele revealed, ‘We hope to start demolition by the following month and construction that is full August.’
Upping the Ante
Tricky Rock had initially prepared to invest $300 million energizing the Taj, but upon further inspection, realized 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 last thirty days. ‘Jesus! What were we thinking?’
