Atlantic City NJ
Glenn Straub, who is being fined $5,000 a day while the building’s emergency fire suppression system is without power, wanted to bring in diesel generators temporarily.
The Resorts iGaming Lounge allows up to 100 patrons to play different casino games online while at Resorts.
New Jersey environmental officials say the large diesel generators that developer Glenn Straub has brought in to get the Revel’s fire-suppression system operating again might not meet federal clean air standards.
Two generators and one backup have arrived at the site, and will be hooked up soon.
Straub now owns the glittering facility, which some might call a “white elephant,” that sits at the northern end of the Atlantic City boardwalk.
Two sources confirm to KYW Newsradio that Straub is talking to Stockton University about taking the former Showboat off their hands.
Florida-based developer Glenn Straub wants permission to move forward this weekend on his $82-million purchase offer for the Revel, so he can arrange for an alternate power source.
As the first order of business, the struggling Pier Shops at Caesars Casino will be renamed the “Playground.”
Officials at Stockton say they knew about the longstanding covenant between Trump Entertainment and the Showboat, but were assured it wouldn’t be a problem.
The judge overseeing the Revel hotel bankruptcy in Atlantic City has decided that she can’t rule now on the $82-million offer from Florida developer Glenn Straub.
Glenn Straub’s agreement to buy the defunct casino-hotel expired at midnight Monday. He wants another month to deal with utility issues and the appeals of commercial tenants who remain.
Straub had until midnight yesterday to close on the sale, but didn’t.
City officials have been warning of health and safety concerns, plus the potential for mold formation if the utilities are shut off at Revel.
And if things play out as he expects they will, Steve Sweeney says he is ready to fight the governor’s plan in court.
And it may center around the defunct Revel property, soon to be bought by Florida developer Glenn Straub.
