Wynn Releases Latest Photos Of $2B Boston-Area Casino, Says It's 70 Percent Complete

Casino On Track For A Summer 2019 Opening


Wynn Resorts met with Massachusetts gaming regulators last week in a public hearing and informed the state that its Boston-area casino is about 70 percent finished.

Encore Boston Harbor, located outside Boston in the town of Everett, has so far cost the casino developer $1.4 billion. The rest of the $2.22 billion price tag will be spent in the coming months.

“We are on schedule with 314 days to go,” Peter Campot, the director of construction for the project, told the Bay State’s Gaming Commission. “We’re 69 percent complete from a time standpoint, 66 percent complete from a labor standpoint and just over 70 percent complete from a cash standpoint. We’re tracking really well.”

According to Campot, the gaming floor in the casino is “about a month ahead of schedule.”

“It’s great because it allows us to move the gaming machines in,” Campot said, “as everyone knows, it’s crucial to have the time to install those, timely.”

The casino will dramatically change the poker scene in the Boston area. The plan is for 90 tables in the poker room, which would make it one of the largest in the region.

Wynn Resorts provided a handful of the latest photos from the construction process:
