ATLANTIC CITY — The former Revel Resort and Casino will now be known as TEN.

The property, owned by Glenn Straub’s Polo Country Club North, is expected to open its doors to the public during the first quarter of 2017, according to a release from the resort’s management group.

“It’s what’s next in Atlantic City. We are thrilled to share our brand with the public and to introduce a new era of resort and entertainment,” stated Robert Landino, CEO of TEN. “TEN joined with our infinity logo represents our mission to provide the highest-rated amenities and our daily endeavor to offer an infinitely perfect escape for our guests, families and businesses.”

The announcement comes a day before the full Casino Reinvestment Development Authority Board of Directors is set to review Straub’s changes to the traffic flow pattern at the facility.

If the plans are approved by the board, Straub would then be able to apply for a temporary certificate of occupancy from the city. The meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the CRDA offices, 15 South Pennsylvania Ave.

Over the last couple of weeks, Straub has said agencies, like CRDA, are holding up the opening of the facility.

He previously claimed the former megaresort was ready to open June 15, despite the company lacking several key permits, including from the authority.

“I am keenly aware of what systems and strategic business processes are needed to make TEN a success internally and externally,” said Alan Greenstein, Chief Financial Officer. “I know what works and what did not, and would not have returned if not for TEN’s strong forecasted financial model and all-star executive team. It is the most spectacular resort that I have seen in my career and I am determined to make it a success.”

Straub has said in the past that he plans to open 900 of the hotel's 1,600 rooms for customers. Polo North bought the $2.4 billion Revel complex for $82 million in bankruptcy court. Revel closed in 2014.
