Revel Atlantic City is a 6.2 million square foot beachfront entertainment resort on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. Located just north of the Showboat Hotel and Casino, Revel is being built on a 20-acre site with 1,000 feet of Boardwalk frontage on what is arguably the most desirable beachfront location in Atlantic City.
Revel is the product of a collaborative effort by an outstanding team of architects, designers, and entertainment consultants whose focus was to create a beachfront resort that would have strong appeal and attraction for the untapped market of over 40 million adults within a six hour drive of its location.
A hint of what the guest will experience at Revel begins with the highly dramatic and iconic architecture of Bernardo Fort Brescia of Architectonica who inspired the design team with a simple question…. at what point does ordinary become extraordinary?
The GSky Green Wall is located in the exterior bar of the front lobby on the 10th floor of the building. When guests arrive, they must take an elevator to the 35′ high ceiling lobby which provides sweeping views of the boardwalk and ocean complete with an oval shaped exterior courtyard bar that is located in the centre of the lobby surrounded by interior on all sides and open to the sky. The Green Wall is an impressive 35′ feet high and creates a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere for guests as they begin their stay at Revel
Because of the heavy winds experienced in this location a custom stainless steel support structure had to be installed to support the weight of the Green Wall across the roof slab and evenly distribute the weight of the entire 770 sqft wall, which will weigh in a upwards of 23,000 lbs when fully grown and fully saturated with water.
Maintenance is performed using a standard scissor lift. Even though the area is in a protected courtyard, it is not immune to heavy winds in this area from the ocean and as such maintenance must be planned around these times to avoid heavy swinging on the lift.
