US.- Hard Rock & Casino Atlantic City executives will today seek preliminary and final site approval for the US$500 million Boardwalk project from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) at a public meeting.

Hard Rock executives are seeking the approval for a US$500 million project that is set to take place at the Boardwalk, in Atlantic City. The former Trump Taj Mahal was acquired last year by Hard Rock, with intentions of having a grand opening by summer 2018.

The approval might come a day before Hard Rock is set to offer a three-city press conference to announce the casino’s grand opening date and entertainment line-up. There will be simultaneous press conferences making the announcement in Hard Rock Café facilities in Atlantic City, New York City and Philadelphia.

The entrance to the hotel is set to feature a massive guitar, which will stand 53-feet high. The width of the guitar is 17 feet and 3/4 inches, while the depth is more than four feet. Hard Rock’s logo will be more than eight feet high and approximately 15 feet wide.
