The Massachusetts Gaming Commission has made it official: The $2.1 billion Wynn Boston Harbor in Everett, MA can move forward. The scheduled opening date is June 2019.
The unanimous decision by the MGC means Wynn can continue construction on the 3.3 million-square-foot casino and hotel on the Mystic River. To get to this point, Wynn Resorts beat out rival proposals from Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs for the Greater Boston casino license in 2014. The company also made it through lawsuits filed by the cities of Boston and Somerville.
The property is anticipated to generate 4,000 construction jobs, with 4,000 permanent jobs being created once it opens.
