Wynn Resorts has announced that equipment will roll in and workers will begin site preparation and pre-construction activities on the $1.7 billion Wynn Everett Resort this morning, Sept. 10.
The pre-construction work is starting less than two weeks after Wynn Everett received an important environmental certificate from the state, capping off an exhaustive two-year public process. Preliminary site work is a major step forward in converting the contaminated former Monsanto Chemical Plant location into a five-star international destination resort complete with gleaming public waterfront park and picturesque shoreline.
“When the trucks start up that also means 4,000 construction jobs start up and the $1.7 billion five-star Wynn Resort in Everett begins to come to life,” said Robert DeSalvio, President of Wynn Everett. “Seeing equipment on the site is welcome news for the local workers, businesses and communities who will benefit from the wages, spending and taxes that Wynn will generate. This is the realization of what voters in Massachusetts overwhelmingly supported—a Wynn Resort in Everett.”
Site remediation is expected to begin by end of 2015. Wynn Everett is expected to open in 2018.
