LAS VEGAS – The Aladdin hotel and casino has unveiled some new drawings for its upcoming transformation into a Planet Hollywood-themed resort by the end of next year.
The remodeling process is expected to begin in October and be executed in phases so that it will remain open throughout the renovation process.
The property was bought out of bankruptcy in 2003 and has long been criticized for its inaccessible design.
The casino will be completely redesigned with an ultramodern look and no distinct theme, the sketches show. The remodeling team includes Dougall Design Associates, Klai Juba Architects and M.J. Dean Construction Inc.
Dougall Design crafted the look for the Borgata resort in Atlantic City and Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, while Klai Juba designed the new hotel tower at Mandalay Bay and the Hard Rock.
“We have the preeminent location on the Strip and … are prepared to deliver to Las Vegas the ultimate desination for entertainment, shopping and gaming,” resort co-Chairman Douglas Teitelbaum said in a statement.
