Steve Wynn’s Wynn Resorts was beset by legal challenges but it still hopes to split ground in the Wynn Boston Harbor task this summer.
Wynn Resorts’ legal battle to get its $2.1 billion project in Everett, near Boston, from the ground received a boost on Friday once the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recommended the company for a waterfront development permit.
The Everett project, which will be known as the Wynn Boston Harbor, has been beset by legal challenges at every turn, despite having been awarded state video gaming license by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission in late 2014.
Wynn has been sued by the City of Boston, along with the City of Somerville, across the water from the former chemical plant on which project is going to be built. Meanwhile, the City of Revere, where a competing Mohegan Sun proposition did not win over the video gaming commission, has sued the gaming commission for failing to be won over by its competing proposal.
As the Boston lawsuit was thrown out in December 2015 by a judge who blasted it if you are ‘spurious,’ and filled with ‘inflammatory descriptions,’ and ‘hyperbole,’ the Somerville challenge remained the impediment that is only proceeding.
