How Wynn is building towards Massachusetts casino launch

The biggest casino project in Massachusetts’ history is a step closer after Suffolk Construction was handed the $1bn (€920m) contract to build the planned Wynn Resort complex.

The Wynn Resort, one of two projects licensed in the state under the Expanded Gaming Act, is due to open in late 2018 and is expected to generate annual gross gaming revenue of $1.4bn.

The resort, which was given the go-ahead in 2014, will feature a luxury hotel with more than 600 rooms, along with gambling halls, a spa and facilities for retail, conferences and dining.

“Building a five-star resort that meets the Wynn quality standards requires an attention to detail that is unwavering,” Wynn executive Robert DeSalvio said in a statement. “Suffolk Construction shares our values and is working with us full speed to meet our ground-breaking target.”

Suffolk has worked on casinos in other states – including Dania Casino and Jai Alai in Florida and Quechan Casino Resort in California.

Wynn Resorts – already a key player in Nevada and Macau – estimates that the project will create 4,000 construction jobs in addition to 4,000 permanent jobs once the resort opens.

Wynn has already started an environmental clean-up of the 33-acre site and expects to break ground sometime in the spring.
