About Wynn Boston Harbor
Wynn Boston Harbor is a $2.1 billion Forbes five-star global destination gaming resort that will feature more than 600 hotel rooms with sweeping views of the Boston skyline and Boston Harbor and ultra-premium spa, retail, dining, ballroom and meeting spaces. The three-million square foot resort will generate more than 4,000 construction jobs and 10 million labor hours, more than 4,000 permanent jobs, $265 million in traffic mitigation and approximately $660 million in direct annual expenditures from Wynn ($242 million in annual taxes and fees, $170 million in payroll and $249 million in goods and services to operate and maintain the resort). It is the largest private single-phase development in the history of the Commonwealth.
Situated on the waterfront along the Mystic River and connected to Boston Harbor, Wynn Boston Harbor will open up the Everett shoreline to the public for the first time in more than a century. Wynn is spending $30 million to clean up the heavily contaminated site and create a six-acre park along the water that will feature pedestrian and bicycle paths that provide access to the harbor, an events lawn, picnic and public viewing areas, ornate floral displays and retail and dining experiences that overlook the Wynn river walk. Wynn privately funded the $30 million site cleanup with no public funds being used.
Guests and employees of Wynn Boston Harbor can connect to points across the harbor via a robust water transportation system that Wynn is introducing. Low-profile, European style boats will be used to sail back and forth without the need to raise area drawbridges.
