New Brunswick Devco to Build On in Atlantic City, Report Says

When a city organization borrows money to build a huge hotel, they usually plan that it will produce revenue so they can pay the loan back. That is not the case with the Heldrich project in New Brunswick by Devco (New Brunswick Development Corporation). The hotel and conference center combination came up right before the financial crisis of 2008, which sent traffic and revenue downhill.
From there, the group had trouble paying back their loans, totaling about $7 million in half of the last 10 years. This last month, for example, they missed a $1 million payment on their principal of $20 million. However, $107 million was actually the size of the original loan.

Originally, the state senate of New Jersey were praising the development. They thought it was a great example of public and private interests coming together. Now, Atlantic City is getting a similar deal that citizens are hoping will turn out better, in Chelsea.

Chris Paladino is a lawyer who helped pen both the deals. He is on record as touting the benefits of the economic outcomes of the project, regardless of the loan situation. He says that $1.2 million in yearly taxes that the property pays, along with employing over 300 people in union jobs does more than enough to justify the original investment.
