ATLANTIC CITY — Contractors for Hard Rock International were busy Wednesday removing the iconic fountain that once greeted guests at the entrance to Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort.
Next summer, the company and investors Joe Jingoli and Jack Morris are expected to reopen the property, once owned by President Donald J. Trump, as the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.
Over the next year, the group is expected to spend more than $500 million to renovate the property.
The project is expected to generate more than 1,000 construction jobs and 3,000 permanent jobs, according to Hard Rock. The new property will feature two separate arenas, with seating totaling 7,000 and more than 2,400 slot machines.
