Atlantic City has promoted its latest redevelopments ahead of 2022’s summer travel season, which historically gets underway on Memorial Day Weekend.
Redevelopments to New Jersey’s Atlantic City have been occurring citywide, and include major capital investments in the city’s casino industry.
Over $1bn have been invested in Atlantic City’s casinos in recent years, as the city looks to diversify its casino offerings and attract new visitors with new amenities.
City redevelopments include the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority’s (CRDA) approval of an $18.7m fund to construct a new ShopRite supermarket, and the erection of a $38.3m Medical Arts Pavilion.
Meanwhile, casino redevelopments include 750 renovated rooms and a new lobby at Bally’s casino, a beer garden and outdoor pool at Borgata Hotel, a Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Atlantic City, a Bobby’s Burgers at Harrah’s Resort and over $85m in property development at Ocean Casino Resort.
President of the Casino Association of New Jersey, Joe Lupo, said: “We are excited to kick off a strong summer season this Memorial Day Weekend, welcoming visitors to enjoy all our city has to offer, from premier gaming to first-class dining and entertainment.
“The casino industry is committed to the future of Atlantic City, and through our combined efforts we are revitalising this beautiful destination resort.”
And Christina Renna, President & CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey, added: “The Atlantic City casino industry is vital to South Jersey’s economy.
“As we continue to rebuild and recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, the industry’s growth and prosperity are more important than ever before. We look forward to an even stronger summer season here in South Jersey, to further stimulate our local and regional economies.”
