As the price tag for its Wynn Boston Harbor Resort waterfront hotel and casino near Boston continues to climb, Wynn Resorts Limited has reportedly decided to scale back on some of the retail offerings planned for the coming Massachusetts facility.

According to a short report from the Associated Press news service, Las Vegas-based Wynn Resorts Limited used a Thursday meeting of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to declare that it additionally wants to boost the number of slots in the development’s casino and add more restaurants and bars while increasing the amount of convention and meeting space.

Due to open in June of 2019 in the Boston suburb of Everett, the Wynn Boston Harbor Resort was originally forecast to cost $2 billion but rising construction and labor costs has seen this figure balloon to $2.4 billion while Wynn Resorts Limited reportedly also told regulators that its planned changes would generate more employment despite fewer jobs on the retail side.
