ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CN) — The Trump presidency is no more, but those hoping to see the end of the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City will have to wait a bit longer.
The defunct building, now owned by hedge fund billionaire Carl Icahn, is scheduled for demolition at 9 a.m. on February 17. A planned auction to allow an individual to push the button imploding the building was called off due to objections by Icahn, who instead will donate $175,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City.
The hotel has been sitting idle since Icahn purchased it in 2016. Last spring, the city announced plans to destroy the building over safety concerns.
