Wynn Resorts Releases Rendering of Everett Casino Harborwalk

Gambling operator Wynn Resorts released on Thursday a rendering of its 20-foot wide pedestrian and bicycle harborwalk, which is to be part of the $1.7-billion hotel and casino resort in Everett, Massachusetts.

The Wynn Everett Harborwalk, as it is referred to, will connect the resort to the neighboring Gateway Center Park.

Robert DeSalvio, President of Wynn Everett, explained that the amenity will be open to the public, pedestrian and cyclists included, all year round. The executive also expressed hopes that it will be “brimming with activity day and night” from both a transportation and recreational prospective.

The harborwalk will feature a picnic park, a number of gardens, a viewing deck, as well as a water ferry to and from Boston.

As previously reported, Wynn Resort’s Everett property will be located on the bank of the Mystic River at the site of a former chemical plant. The gambling operator has previously promised to clean up the 33-acre contaminated site as part of its plans for the construction of the luxury resort.

Mr. DeSalvio commented that by doing this, Wynn Resorts will present visitors of its property with a “beautiful urban waterfront” that few people nowadays know that it actually exists. Furthermore, being connected to the Gateway Center Park means that visitors will not have to come to the resort by car and will be able to walk instead.

In January, Wynn Resorts released new renderings for its Everett property. It will boast the iconic curved shape and Wynn Bronze Glass. The 24-story tower will feature 600 rooms, a meeting hall and convention space, a large casino floor, etc. The resort will also include a number of entertainment, food and beverage, and retail options, as well as a parking lot with as many as 3,400 spots. As for the harborwalk, the gambling operator has promised that it will be “Boston’s most magnificent outdoor gathering spot.”

The resort is expected to open doors sometime in 2017 despite the pending litigation and Wynn Resorts’ dispute with Boston officials. The gambling operator has previously announced that about 3,700 construction jobs will be created. Furthermore, almost 4,400 people will be employed at the property, once it is fully operational.
