Atlantic City plans to bring a $75 million development project, including a movie theater and supermarket, to a neighborhood near the Revel and Showboat casinos.

The project would be backed in part by former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal and a development company with which he has partnered, both sides said in a news release issued Thursday.

The City Council approved the plan Wednesday night involving Boraie (Bo-RAY’) Development for the south Inlet neighborhood. It will include a Shaq Cityplex movie theater, as well as homes, shops and offices.
