Wynn unveils new model of Everett casino project
A small army of volunteers has been out door knocking and holding signs in support of a $1.2 billion Wynn casino in Everett as the Las Vegas gaming titan continued its full-court press by unveiling a scale model of the proposed waterfront resort.
?The support we?ve gotten from the people of Everett has been extraordinary,? said Wynn Las Vegas president and chief operating officer Gamal Aziz. ?I?ve seen a major push for Wynn to have the opportunity to build this resort here.?
Aziz and Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria stood side-by-side as a scale model of the gleaming, bronze waterfront tower was unveiled today. The intricate model, which Aziz said itself cost $90,000 to build, showed an impressive resort marked by a new riverwalk along the Mystic River, boat docks, a massive restaurant and retail promenade, a 600-seat outdoor amphitheater and a 100,000 square foot casino ? all surrounding a massive, 550-room hotel.
?This is an opportunity for the city of Everett,? Aziz said. ?This will be the highest quality hotel in all of Boston. This is really a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for this site.?
