The Center was designed to incorporate and reflect Atlantic City's seaside location and has won the prestigious "Award of Excellence in Architectural Design" from the Pennsylvania Society of Architects. Regional decor is evident throughout the building, from the wave-inspired carpeting and granite flooring, an attractive setting for any event planner. Visitors entering the building are welcomed by a 90-foot high skylit atrium lobby complete with a lobby concierge, sculptures, and art. Artist Jonathan Borofsky created the five flying fish sculptures suspended above the atrium floor. Twenty-seven cast stone sculptures, created by Thomas Van Dyke of Prospect Park and cast by American Trim Stone of Haskell, are inset into the atrium walls and represent local sea life such as starfish, crabs, and seahorses. The fourth floor showcases artist William Wegman's photographic exhibit entitled Six Scenic Scenes which depicts his famous weimaraners in costume and participating in activities found throughout New Jersey.
