Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett
 
I feel there is enough here to separate it from the general casino developments thread, seeing this will be breaking ground soon. This tower will rise to 386 feet.

Here is the one in vegas for some real world images that closely resemble what we will get.

Here's hoping the horizontal accent lighting is a bit closer to the Everett rendering than the real world example. I get it, casinos are intended to be somewhat garish, and call attention to themselves. In Vegas you are competing to get noticed among 20 other mega-resorts on the same road. This thing will be all alone without competition. Tone it down a bit, and you'll still stick out like a sore thumb.

This proposal that got pushed through because of the corrupt Unions without a better plan concerning 93N-S Traffic.

This is a disgrace.

Typical democrats running the city into the ground like they have all over the country.

An interesting bit I read before is that they will have low level high speed water taxis to get under the bridges. They will leave from Rowes Wharf and other parts of the city to get you there and back fast without having to use the drawbridges.

I agree the first proposal would have looked outdated the day it was built.

You'd think they'd go with a lighter glass since this is Massachusetts and not a 100F desert.

The glass color, Wynn Bronze, is actually copyrighted. It's his signature material.

What's the height? Will this be visible on the skyline from anywhere? Just curious.

WCVB News has anounced that Wynn has chosen Suffolk Construction CO, as general contractor for the project.

This was my reaction exactly. Suffolk has a pretty large proportion of the new construction in the city.

I'm just going to say it: It's "Everett". Can a mod change the title, please?

That was not the title I had put, a mod changed it to what it is currently. Can a mod please change the title to what I have edited it to say? Its at the top of the first post. Thank you.

I think it would have been in their best interests to angle the tower to face the Boston skyline. Not sure why they did not.

IIRC, the thin side of the tower faces the power plant across the channel, so it reduces views of that obstruction when looking out from hotel windows. Could someone please confirm this?

Also, I read the hotel will be about the same height as the smoke stack from that power plant, too.

If you are referring to the tallest smokestack by the windmill and the 3 shorter smokestacks, that one is apparently 500' on the dot and the 3 shorter ones are each in the 300-350' range.
