Not that there is anything wrong with that!:)
That was Pinnacle.Quote: vendman1
Weren't they originally going to build on the site where the Sands used to be? Just north of the Claridge?
Or was that the failed Pinnacle venture.
The Hard Rock was going to be on a lot about 2 blocks south of the Hilton, at the south end of Pacific Ave at Albany Ave. It's unclear if Hard Rock ever purchased that lot, but the plans got killed as a result of the lousy initial results posted by Revel.

I saw this article too. Weren't they originally going to build on the site where the Sands used to be? Just north of the Claridge? They cleared the site and everything but then never did anything. It's some kind of weird park now. Or was that the failed Pinnacle venture. Hard to say. Shame they can't buy the Showboat or the Revel. They'd do a better job for sure i would think.
I think they were going to build just south of the now closed atlantic club /hilton in partnership with Bashaw and Barr who own the Chelsea hotel.
I would wait until bankruptcy runs its course for AC. Pricing should be below dirt cheap for ocean front land /property.
I've been to a CCC meeting. What a farce this commission is, laughable.

Bashaw and Barr paid 600 million just for the empty lots in that area. Probably can buy for 6 million now. They tried to get hard rock to bail them out.
However, something like that-- and any new investment or expansion anywhere in A.C. just isn't going to happen.
Who knows perhaps the Chelsea can become the Hard rock? I am having trouble seeing anyone build a new casino from scratch. Lenders would shudder at the thought.
I really think a small place with little overhead has the best chance for success. Trump Plaza has an excellent location and no deed restriction. But is in dire need of much remodeling that doesn't come cheap.
The power and the hopes (erections) of the political garbage not that long ago.
