Revel: the fallout?

How will the problems at Revel affect Atlantic City's efforts to repackage itself?

Revel: the fallout?


Suzette Parmley has a follow-up in Thursday's Inquirer about the fallout from the bankruptcy of Revel. She asks how it might complicate the resort's efforts to rebrand itself as more than just a gaming hub.

Another question to ask: If Revel is struggling at positioning itself as "more than just a casino," would the Philly projects that are packaging themselves as casinos-plus also have difficulty? That would include such projects as Wynn Philadelphia, Blatstein's "The Provence" and Market8 in Center City.

What do you think?
