Jim Kirkos, the president and CEO of the Meadowlands regional chamber of commerce, remains optimistic the $3 billion project will open in less than 2 years.
“The project is immensely important to New Jersey and certainly my region here in North Jersey and the Meadowlands,” he said. “American Dream is a game-changer on many levels, in terms of its economic impact and job creation.”
He said “when you put American Dream together with the other destination related assets we have here in the Meadowlands, with the stadium and the racetrack and the dining facilities, our expo center, it’s a game-changer. It’s immensely important. We’re cautiously optimistic that the financing will be settled in the next handful of weeks and they can start construction again.”
Who could resist the dining facilities?
