A mixed-use, $220 million project that could help lift the fortunes of Atlantic City is still a year from completion, but it has already started to transform a parcel of beachfront property in the resort town.
A newly released video from the developer, AC Devco, shows that it has erected much of the steel frame for what will be known as the Atlantic City Gateway project. The 675,000-square-foot development is slated to include new academic and student housing buildings for Stockton University and a six-story office tower for South Jersey Industries in the city’s Chelsea section, in one of the city’s most high-profile nongaming projects over the past two decades.
AC Devco and state officials held a ceremonial groundbreaking only about three months ago, but the developer says the project is about 30 percent complete. It expects to deliver the Stockton buildings by August 2018 and the South Jersey Industries tower about a month later.
