Margaritaville Casino in Atlantic City now “Out of the Picture”

posted September 10th, 2010 at 8:53 am

There’s another fresh round of back-and-forth between Coastal Development (a partnership with Jimmy Buffett) and Trump Entertainment Resorts over the Trump Marina Hotel Casino in Atlantic City. This time it appears the deal is off for good.

“Coastal made a written offer to purchase the Marina on Aug. 23, 2010, and was prepared to place half of the purchase price in escrow,” Coastal Chairman Richard T. Fields said. “The company never responded. . . . Last week, we formally withdrew our offer.”

“We are now officially out of the picture,” Fields added, “and will not be used in the press as a stalking horse in a deceptive process.”

The original plan back in 2008 was to purchase the resort for approximately 315 million dollars and turn it into a Margaritaville-themed casino and resort. The deal was on and then off multiple times, eventually culminating in Coastal Development suing Trump in 2009 over the deal. The lawsuit is apparently still ongoing.

The August 23rd offer by Coastal that went unanswered was reportedly for less than $75 million… a freefall from the original $315 million offer and later offer of $270 million.

Trump Entertainment CEO Mark Juliano believes a deal can still be done with Coastal, noting that it “would make the fourth time that [Coastal has] been out.”

Jimmy Visits Southern Miss, Headed to Saints Game

As we tweeted out earlier today, Jimmy Buffett visited the campus of Southern Miss today to discuss a couple of projects he’s working on with the university:

After he and [school president Martha] Saunders had lunch in the Trent Lott Center, Saunders gave Buffett a tour of campus, and the two talked with students outside the Administration Building.

“I wanted to come back and see my old campus,” Buffett said. “It’s been a while. Some things have definitely changed, and some things haven’t.”

Buffett said he came through Hattiesburg on business, but he will be having some fun as well. “I’m on my way down to see the Saints game,” he said.

Buffett told the students he graduated from USM on the same day as President Saunders. “I have the program to prove it,” Saunders joked.

Before going into the Administration Building, Buffett said, “I’ve never seen the President’s office… but I’ve seen the dean’s office a few times.”

As Saunders and Buffett left the students, Buffett told them, “Y’all get back to class.”

Back in June Jimmy visited the university’s Gulf Coast Research Center. He had donated boats to them to help in the gulf oil spill cleanup.
