The north end of the Atlantic City Boardwalk is getting a facelift thanks to a public private-partnership between Atlantic City, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA), the State Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and Revel Casino.

Work has begun to revitalize the Garden Pier at New Jersey Avenue and the Boardwalk. CRDA Director of Project Implementation and Management Thomas Meehan says it began with the Authority’s $850,000 contribution toward the demolition of the severely storm-battered portion of the pier.

He says an estimated $255-million dollars is going toward efforts to put all new decking on the pier, all new exterior lights, all new landscaping treatments, new facades on the Atlantic City Historical Museum and the Atlantic City Art Center, as well as signs. Meehan says they also awarded a contract to R.E. Pierson to stabilize the Garden Pier’s substructure and remove an unusable building at the end of the pier that will open up views to the ocean.

Meehan says work on the Garden Pier will coincide with the Grand opening of the Revel Casino in May.
