New Jersey is answering New York's decision to expand casino gambling.

The Press of Atlantic City reported that Harrah's Entertainment Inc. will build a 480-room towers at its Showboat Casino-Hotel.

The $90 million project is viewed as a vote of confidence for a city beset by lower gambling revenues, suspended casino projects and eventual New York casinos.

Construction will begin in February with a planned opening in the summer or fall of 2003, assuming environmental and planning approvals.
