At Wynn Boston Harbor It’s The “Non-Casino Story That Is The Story”

After some unseasonable spring weather, construction efforts on the Wynn Boston Harbor Casino are into high gear. Now the sheer size and scope of the Everett, Massachusetts project are beginning to take shape. A recent report in the Boston Globe offers a tantalizing glimpse at the future resort casino, which is scheduled to open June 24, 2019. Wynn Boston Harbor is routinely touted by Wynn Resorts and Massachusetts officials as the largest single-phase private development project in the state’s history. And this isn’t hyperbole. In fact, according to the Boston Globe, the building’s footprint alone will encompass 13 acres. Construction workers will pour 200,000 cubic yards of concrete by project’s end. For some perspective, the Globe reports this is enough concrete to “lay a sidewalk the entire length of the Mass. Pike.” From concrete to destination casino The Wynn Boston Harbor will be just outside Boston. The property is only about 15-20 minutes by car from Logan International Airport. However, as in all major cities, the drive time is highly dependent on traffic. With its prime location, Wynn Resorts is building a full-fledged destination resort casino designed to attract visitors from all over the globe. During a keynote address at Global Gaming Expo 2014, Steve Wynn called Wynn Boston Harbor a “chance to build a grand hotel again” and give people a chance to experience the “good life” for a few days, to be a “big shot.” Wynn hopes to fulfill that mission by providing both gaming and non-gaming options. It’s the “non-casino story that is the story,” Wynn said at G2E. The 200,000-square-foot casino floor of the Wynn Boston Harbor will boast:
2,500 slot machines
150 table games
90-plus-table poker room The property’s dining and entertainment options are even more impressive:
A five-star hotel with 671 rooms
56,602 square feet of retail space
10 restaurants and bars
Full-service spa and gym
Multi-use convention space
Outdoor space
Indoor garden As mentioned in the Globe article, the Massachusetts casino will have plenty of parking, including 2,931 spaces in an attached, underground parking garage. The property will also have 800 parking spots offsite.
