Reputable gaming operator Wynn Resorts announced a $1 billion bid package for Everett casino on Wednesday. The package features supplies and subcontracted services needed in order to help the general contractor to finish the $2.1b casino resort located on the Mystic River in Everett.
The operator described the bid opportunity as one of the highest ever issued for “any private, union-built, single-phase development” in Massachusetts history. Additionally, it urged interested companies to email [email protected] for more information.
Robert DeSalvio, Wynn Boston Harbor president, stated that the company was committed to keep spending as much as possible close to their home during the 3-year construction phase. He pointed out that they aim to include as many minority, women and veteran-owned vendors as they can. According to his statement, Wynn wanted workers and local vendors “to step up and play a big role” in building the casino resort.
Wynn Boston Harbor, a project promoted by billionaire Steve Wynn, boasts with being the largest single-phase construction project in the history of Massachusetts. The property, which is located on the banks of the Mystic River, is expected to create 4,000 union jobs.
The resort is scheduled to be opened in 2017 and, according to reports, it will feature 3242 gaming machines and 168 table games. Wynn Boston Harbor is expected to have a 150,000 sq/ft casino floor, a poker room, spas, bars and several restaurants.
This complex is going to be the third one to offer approved table games within the state borders. The other two are the Taunton casino owned by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, which is expected to open next summer, and MGM’s Springfield casino whose opening date is set sometime in September 2018.
