It was demolition day at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
On Friday, October 26th, representatives with Spectra, Meet AC, and the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) officially kicked off a $9.1 million restroom renovation project at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
Local dignitaries, staff, and clients picked up some sledgehammers and began demolishing toilets for the project that will completely overhaul the Convention Center's 32 restrooms.
Officials say the renovation is just another step in helping to make sure Atlantic City continues to grow.
"The Atlantic City Convention Center is a premiere convention center on the East Coast," said Marshall Spevak, deputy executive director, CRDA, "so we're continuing to grow our business, to grow the city, [and] revitalize the city ... that's really all that we're talking about today."
The renovation project of the more than 20,000-square-feet of space will include the installation of all new wall tile, flooring, mirrors, toilets, and lighting.
The project is expected to be completed by September 2019.
