A piece of the Atlantic City skyline got a makeover on Thursday. But it is just the beginning for the new owners.
Each casino tower in the city has its own flare. For Bally’s, it’s the rose-colored glass.
“It was the first big construction that was built in Atlantic City, I think it was in the early 80s,” says Bally’s executive vice president of casino operations Phil Juliano.
Juliano says that there has always been one thing that has bothered him about the rose-colored tower.
“Now you had 15 to 20 windows dispersed throughout this glorious tower and blue with no pattern to it and no logical sequence to it, so consequently, it was not a good sight,” he says.
Rose-colored glass is not easy to find. But Juliano’s team found a local company to make the panels that will replace the current blue ones.
“Let it stand as a symbol of what’s to come,” he says.
Replacing the glass is just one of the improvements that the new ownership is doing to Bally's. They will also be changing parts of the casino floor, adding restaurants and renovating hotel rooms.
"All 750 rooms in the tower will be renovated and they're going to be quite nice. I've seen the model and will have some samples done shortly. We're very excited about that,” Juliano says.
Bally’s was previously owned by Caesar’s Entertainment.
