Hard Rock Renews Interest in Atlantic City, Possibly Revel
Seminole Hard Rock Entertainment has filed documents with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, signaling renewed interest in the Atlantic City casino market, according to press reports. The company is said to be among the parties interested in purchasing Revel Casino Hotel, but to date neither Hard Rock nor Revel has commented on the matter. Revel, the 1,800-room luxury gaming resort that debuted in 2012, emerged from bankruptcy last May; the property has 160,000 square feet of indoor meeting space and 90,000 square feet of outdoor function space. In 2012, Hard Rock shelved plans to build an 850-room casino resort due to "market conditions."
