Hard Rock International unveiled plans for the launch of its redevelopment of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City. The former Taj Mahal building will undergo a $375 million renovation, slated for completion in the summer of 2018.

The hotel entrance will be completely reconstructed by updating the existing facades along Pacific Avenue, the resort entry, porte cochere and along the boardwalk. The lobby, guestrooms and meeting spaces will also be updated. A full-service spa will be added, as well as The Sound of Your Stay music amenity program, which will offer complimentary in-room Fender guitar checkouts.

Situated on a 17-acre site, the hotel is set to create more than 1,000 jobs during construction and 3,000 permanent positions. The property design will feature museum-like displays among the walls of music memorabilia.

“From world-renowned music events to innovative dining concepts, we’re excited to bring the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino experience to the Atlantic City boardwalk – which has been home to our Hard Rock Cafe for more than 20 years,” said Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International, in prepared remarks. “Our commitment to Atlantic City has never been stronger and we look forward to being a catalyst for further growth and development of the area.”
