The latitudes will be staying the same, but the attitudes in Atlantic City will start changing as Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville project at Resorts Casino Hotel begins construction on the beachfront. Resorts Casino Hotel announced today that Massett Building Company will break ground and begin working on the foundation for the LandShark Bar and Grill on Wednesday, November 14.
“We are thrilled to get the Margaritaville project underway,” said Gary Van Hettinga, president and C.E.O. of Resorts Casino Hotel. “Seeing the first signs of work occurring on the beach in front of Resorts is an exciting first step. The LandShark Bar and Grill will be the first of its kind in Atlantic City and this landmark moment will be one of many in an aggressive construction schedule. The cooperation we are receiving from government agencies, including the Governor’s office, CRDA, DEP, Economic Development Authority and the City of Atlantic City, together with the efforts of our construction team, has been and will continue to be instrumental in completing this project on schedule.”
“The start of construction on any new project represents new opportunities for us along with the community that we become part of” says Margaritaville’s Tamara Baldanza. “This project is the result of many people collaborating together to create a true destination for residents and visitors alike. Parrotheads will definitely be flocking to Atlantic City this spring to experience our first-ever New Jersey location.”
On Wednesday, November 14 Massett Building Company will begin laying the foundation for the LandShark Bar and Grill on the beach in front of Resorts. This signals the first step in the construction of the Margaritaville entertainment complex that is scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2013.
The Margaritaville complex at Resorts will completely embrace the lifestyle featuring a casino, restaurant, Five O’clock Somewhere Bar, retail stores, LandShark Bar and Grill and their first ever coffee shop.
