The History of The Borgata

The Borgata plan started in 1999, when Steve Wynn has a major project called The Tunnel Project, who wanted to connect a tunnel (a $330 million 2.5 mile-4.0 km tunnel) from the Atlantic City Expressway to the new resort (named the Atlantic City-Brigantine Connector). After the joint venture between MGM Mirage and Boyd Gaming, Borgata was opened on July 2, 2003 at 11:45 PM. At this major project have participated two biggest firms, Marnell Corrao Associates of Las Vegas, and Philadelphia’s Bower Lewis and Thrower Architects (BLT), who have created the third tallest building (the main tower) in Atlantic City.  As a part of its expansion in June 2006, Borgata installed one of the largest poker room in Atlantic City, while in June 2008, Borgata opened its second hotel, The Water Club. The Borgata offers five fine dining restaurants, including Old Homestead, Bobby Flay Steak and Wolfgang Puck American Grille, six casual dining options on the casino level, a lower level food court, 4 nightclubs, one spa (name Spa Toccare – 54,000-square-foot (5,000 m2), and a special event center (Borgata Event Center – the main music venue, with a capacity of 3200 people).
