After several false starts, Revel, the 1,400-room gaming resort in Atlantic City that has been shuttered since 2014, will reopen next year with a new name, Ten, according to news sources.
During its two years of operation, the property had 13 restaurants, a 32,000-square-foot spa, a casino and 160,000 square feet of indoor event space. The property was purchased in April 2015 for $82 million from a bankruptcy court by developer Glen Straub; he announced opening dates prior to 2017, despite the company lacking several key permits. Straub has blamed two agencies, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and the state's Division of Gaming Enforcement, for the delays.
In a statement announcing the rebranding and new opening date, Robert Landino, CEO of Ten, said, "In many ways, Ten is about a resurgence and commitment to the virtues of Atlantic City as a vintage East Coast destination, while boldly redefining entertainment in today's society." He added that the new brand represents "our mission to provide the highest-rated amenities and our daily endeavor to offer an infinitely perfect escape for our guests, families and businesses."
