Need them to fund that bridge. And pay the majority of Everett's tax base. And clean up that power plant. And I just enjoy how the building creates a presence over the water, especially at night.
I'm not keen on the Las Vegas Strip/Macau Cotai look, but, I can live with it. I'm really a fan of the wildly cheap buffets that come with gaming.

Encore is performing better than pre-pandemic numbers: the last four months have been their highest earning gross gaming revenue ever, including this record haul for October 2021.


Follow the momentum…the land acquisition holdings, favorable gaming revenue trends, zoning changes in recent months, the reelected Mayor, sports betting on the horizon. How long before Wynn Resorts announces the next hotel tower(s) and expansion?

Thanks for sharing!

"The Applicant is proposing a multi-use development, which includes the construction of an
approximately 20,000-gross-square-foot, two-story restaurant building with an outdoor dining terrace, an
1,800-seat event center and associated pre-function space, an approximately 2,212 space parking garage,
as well as a pedestrian bridge to cross Broadway (Route 99) and connect to Encore Boston Harbor"

So we knew a concert hall was going to be proposed, the addition of a large garage makes sense. I still feel a little underwhelmed at the scale of the events center - why not go bigger? The large restaurant on Broadway is nice, but a "terrace" next to 8 lanes of traffic will suck, and the Broadway frontage just feels like a copy-paste from Las Vegas Blvd - is that the idea down the length of Broadway?

The bridge will be a totally new entrance to Everett, and with that many lanes of traffic makes sense.

I'm genuinely curious as to whether or not anyone from the team behind this proposal has ever spent any time in the area. There's just no world in which a "terrace" along Broadway is going to be an enjoyable dining experience.

Except that there really isn't. I ride through that area by bike a couple times a week, including the industrial stuff behind Broadway, and it smells just fine.
Are you sure you don't have Covid? (I keed, I keed)
I rode through there on Sunday afternoon. I had no sensation in my fingers, but my nose did pick up a whiff of a Chateau d'Oil 2020, with distinct earthy, oleaginous notes of macadam and loam, pleasantly austere of tannins. I sampled it at this free tasting location two blocks from the state sanctioned filcherie.
I will concede that the oil smell gives way to truck dust further down Robin and Dexter. As long as the winds prevail as westerlies, all will be well for those logic bereft few, rapt in illusory awe at the Altar of Mammon.

Well, I don't have COVID, but I suppose it is possible that my brain is filtering out an unpleasant stench. I do tend to notice as soon as I cross under the Tobin, that I can suddenly smell salt air, whereas I don't smell that at all the entire way between Broadway and that spot, so maybe my mind just shuts it all out? Regardless, I bet they have ways to deal with such issues.
