Six-month delays for Atlantic City’s Hard Rock boutique casino

    The Casino Control Commission has granted Hard Rock International a six-month delay on its Atlantic City boutique casino project.

    According to the Associated Press, the company still hasn’t obtained the environmental permits needed to build on the beach. An initial $1 million payment was to be paid by tomorrow, and work was set to begin July 15.

    Hard Rock International was the only company to file a petition to build one of two smaller-scale casinos in A.C.
