Trump Marina to Stay Open During Renovation to Margaritaville

September 20th, 2008

Atlantic City’s Trump Marina Hotel Casino will stay open during its renovation and redesign to “Margaritaville”:

The developer who’s buying the Trump Marina Hotel Casino says it will remain open while it’s renovated into “Margaritaville.”

Richard Fields, chairman of Coastal Development LLC, signed a deal earlier this year to buy the casino from Trump Entertainment Resorts.

He told a gathering of business and labor leaders on Friday morning that he intends to keep the property open to keep casino and hotel workers on the job during the transition.

“I wanted to come here, in person, and tell you we intend to keep the marina, hotel and casino open during the entire rebranding and refurbishment process,” Fields said at a meeting of the Alliance For Action in Trenton. “In addition to creating hundreds of new construction jobs, we want to keep as many of the hotel staff working as well because when Atlantic City succeeds and New Jersey succeeds, I believe we all succeed.”

Coastal Marina will own all of the Atlantic City project, but will engage in a business venture there with Margaritaville Holdings LLC, owned by singer Jimmy Buffett, which includes a string of restaurants and retail shops.

August 13th, 2007

The Sun Herald has an article on the Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi: “Margaritaville construction under way; ‘The Today Show’ here Tuesday”

Without fanfare, construction began on Margaritaville Casino on the beach in Biloxi, three months after Jimmy Buffett sang “Margaritaville” as he and Harrah’s Entertainment announced they were joining to build the $700 million resort.

Construction is expected to take 2-1/2 years, with the resort opening in early 2010.

Jacqueline Peterson, senior corporate manager communications for Harrah’s Entertainment, said “The Today Show” will be at Harrah’s Grand Casino Biloxi and the Margaritaville site Tuesday filming a segment for its “America the Beautiful” feature on how the casinos are helping to rebuild the Coast.
