Governor Baker Tours Wynn Resort Construction Site

 On Thurs., June 1st, Governor Baker toured the Wynn casino construction site along with Mayor Carlo DeMaria, Wynn Boston Harbor President Robert DeSalvio, State Senator Sal DiDomenico, State Representative Joseph McGonagle, and members of the Wynn team.

The $2.4 billion resort is the largest private, single-phase development in the history of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This site once housed the first Merrimac Chemical in the 1800s, and then later, the Monsanto plant operated there.

The environmental remedition on the site was completed this past year. The site was excavated, and the underground parking garage is nearly complete. Also, steel is currently being erected, and soon precast facade will be going in along with glass panels that is currently being manufractured.

Mayor DeMaria said, “Today we welcome Governor Baker to the City of Everett. He was able to witness firsthand the unmatched potential of this project for our region, its forward momentum, and the tremendous environmental benefits with the cleanup of a highly contaminated hazardous waste site. This project is already yielding benefits to our city.”
