Sitting on 17 acres of prime Boardwalk real estate, the former Taj Mahal is in line for a $375 million overhaul under the ownership of Hard Rock International and the Morris and Jingoli families.
Here are some details on those plans:
The entrance of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will be completely reimagined, beginning with updating the existing facades along Pacific Avenue, at the resort entry, the covered entrance and along the Boardwalk.
Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City will move to a new 400-seat venue, including an improved stage and central location within the property featuring beach access.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will be programmed with live music, sporting events, conferences and shows with two separate arenas offering more than 7,000 seats total.
The completed facility will offer 2,400 slots and 130 table games. The casino interior will be entirely redesigned with new food and beverage concepts.
Guestrooms and suites will undergo a complete renovation and redesign, while meeting space will be updated to accommodate both large conventions and smaller events.
