Boyd Hints at Borgata-style Redevelopment of Stardust

Another, bigger question mark is the redevelopment of the Stardust. The company is working on conceptual plans for a new resort at the 63-acre site but won't be ready to announce any details until close to the end of the year, executives said.

Analysts have speculated that the company will devise a resort much like the Borgata. The resort is half owned by MGM Mirage and has been a runaway success in Atlantic City, attracting East Coast urbanites and young hipsters who don't normally go to the seaside casino town.

Among the decisions to be made is whether the company will have a joint venture partner at the Stardust and what the project will look like.

"We're still in the data-gathering process," Boyd President Keith Smith said. "We haven't ruled anything out and we haven't ruled anything in."
