The project will be built as an addition to the Resorts Casino Hotel.

Gov. Chris Christie joined Resorts Casino officials and Buffett on the Boardwalk on Tuesday afternoon to announce the plan.

Buffett operates a casino and restaurant company under the Margaritaville brand, inspired by the 1970s hit song of the same name. The first one opened in Florida’s Key West. The Atlantic City complex will be the first on the East Coast.

Resorts owner Morris Bailey says getting a Margaritaville is a coup.

Buffett says he is eager to help Atlantic City regain its place as a beach vacation destination.

The Margaritaville complex at Resorts is due to open in 2013.
