Land owner eyes new marina casino in A.C.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - November 12, 2008 The Press of Atlantic City reports that Rob Pagano has asked city officials to rezone 17 acres he owns near the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa to enable it to be developed as a casino.

The newspaper reported that Triple Five Worldwide, which owns the Mall of America in Minnesota, may be involved in the project. Pagano and a Triple Five official attended a city planning meeting last week where the plan was discussed.

Two other Atlantic City casino projects worth a combined $7 billion are on indefinite hold due to the worsening economy.
