Wynn unveils more details of Everett, Mass. plan

Updated:

EVERETT, Mass. (AP) - Las Vegas casino operator Steve Wynn has unveiled an artist's rendering of a $1.2 billion proposed resort casino in Everett.

The rendering shows a high-rise building on the banks of the Mystic River, connected to what appear to be restaurants and retail stores along a riverwalk.

Wynn is proposing the complex on 37 acres of land at the site of a former chemical plant in Everett.

Wynn dropped an earlier proposal to build a casino in Foxborough after opposition in the town.

The Suffolk Downs race track in East Boston and a Milford group are also competing for the sole eastern Massachusetts resort casino license.

Wednesday's event was scheduled following a teleconference last week in which Everett residents said they were eager to see what the casino would look like.
