Wynn Everett Resort Receives Final Approval From Everett

Encore Boston Harbor Day
LAS VEGAS (September 29, 2015)—Wynn Resorts announced that it received unanimous approval last night from the City of Everett Planning Board for its $1.7 billion Wynn Everett Resort. The board approval of the site plan is a necessary step for the 33-acre Wynn Everett Resort to advance and is the most critical local permit needed by Wynn.

The vote by the Everett Planning Board allows Wynn to apply for local building permits and comes less than two weeks after Wynn Everett received unanimous approval from the Everett Conservation Commission and nearly one month after Wynn Everett received approval of its Environmental Impact Report from the State of Massachusetts, the culmination of a 27-month public process that satisfies the Massachusetts Environmental Protection Act (MEPA).

“We’re very thankful for the vote from the Everett Planning Board and the continued positive momentum that is building for our Wynn Everett Resort,” said Robert DeSalvio, President of Wynn Everett. “Similar to our recent state approval, this approval is an important step that moves us much closer to construction and also helps bring Everett’s long-term plan for the area to life. The planning board recognized that Wynn Everett will be a catalyst in transforming Lower Broadway from an underused industrial area into a vibrant and thriving neighborhood. Wynn Everett will play a central role in this historic redevelopment.”

Cleanup of the contaminated site, which is adjacent to Route 99 in Everett, is expected to start in the next several months with construction starting in spring of 2016. The Wynn Everett Resort is expected to be open in 2018.
