New sign of Ocean Resort Casino

A new sign has been put up on Ocean Resort Casino, formerly known as Revel Casino Hotel, showcasing a logo for the property on a small scale. Former building owner Glenn Straub sold Revel on Jan. 4 to AC OCEAN WALK, a group led by Colorado-based investor Bruce Deifik, for $200 million. The new property was set to reopen this summer.

On what used to be the Revel Casino Hotel are now small signs of hope for an opening as the Ocean Resort Casino.

Literally, small signs.

The building is showcasing as of this week a logo on the property, on a small scale, that faces the ocean to advertise the property.

Atlantic City Story: Small signs of development

Former building owner Glenn Straub sold Revel on Jan. 4 to AC OCEAN WALK, a group led by Colorado-based investor Bruce Deifik, for $200 million. Signs around the property say that “something beautiful is coming spring/summer of 2018.”

Meanwhile, the rebirth of Tennessee Avenue is expected to welcome three more concepts, including a coffee shop, chocolate bar and beer hall, all aiming to open in the next few months.
