The Atlantic City Hotel and Casino (ACI) is opening its first Atlantic City location, the first to open in the U.S., in the city’s west end.
It’s the newest of three Atlantic City locations the city is planning for the next decade.
The hotel is scheduled to open on July 1.
“We have some great plans and we’re excited to open our doors to the public,” said John D. Sullivan, ACI president and CEO.
“We’re bringing a new, fresh, exciting experience to our customers, and to our neighbors in Atlantic City, and we have some very exciting things in store for the community.”
The hotel, at 1401 S. Main St., will be located on the east side of the site where the original Atlantic City City Hotel was built in the 1920s.
The new hotel will feature a restaurant, a nightclub and a new outdoor seating area.
The site has not been built yet, but it will include a parking garage and a water park.
The property was previously owned by the Atlantic City Development Corporation (ADC).
It will be a mixed-use project, with retail, residential and office space, and the hotel will have three floors of retail and a rooftop pool.
There are two other Atlantic City hotels on the market, the ACI Atlantic City at 830 S. First Ave.
and the ACN Atlantic City Atrium at 827 S. Second Ave.
The new hotel is expected to cost about $200 million to build.
It will have an open-concept, multi-level building with a 360-degree glass roof and an open bar, and it will feature an indoor and outdoor dining room, bar, lounging area, fitness center, gym and more.
The rooftop pool is expected for use during the winter and summer.
ACI will open its new Atlantic City headquarters and offices in September 2018.
In a statement, Sullivan said the new hotel “is the culmination of a long-term plan to transform the iconic Atlantic City site.”
The hotel will be the first of its kind in Atlantic County.
It’ll be a “world class hotel,” he said.
The Atlantic City area is home to about 150,000 people, and Sullivan said ACI hopes to attract the best local talent to the city.
ACA is a subsidiary of Atlantic City Holdings Inc., which also owns the Atlantic Towne, Atlantic City’s downtown shopping mall.
Sullivan also said that ACI is investing $200 to $300 million to renovate and build the project, and that it expects to be open for business by July.
ACIC is also in talks with another new Atlantic County project to build a luxury hotel.
The two new Atlantic hotels are expected to be ready by 2019.
The ACI project is expected, and already in the works, to have a “catalyst effect” in the community.
Sullivan said that “at this point, it is in a very positive, positive, and very positive mood.”
ACI has worked with local leaders, including City Councilwoman Jennifer Feltz, and she is “very excited” about the development.
“It’s great to have the opportunity to be here in the heart of Atlantic County,” Feltzer said.
“I look forward to our future together.”
