It works well in the desert with the backdrop of Vegas....

On the Mystic River harbor gateway it leans toward ghastly.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I actually hope they redevelop Everett for good now.
Get rid of the Strip malls in the area.

Everett will become what the Seaport should have become (Boston Entertainment District)

The main difference is Everett succeed using private industry to invest in the area instead of using 100's of Millions in Taxpayers infrastructure costs and incentives to the corporations.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I've heard conflicting stories about whether the strip mall land has been purchased by Wynn or not.

I expected them to buy up everything not tied down and follow the other Vegas standard development plan, and build condos condos condos.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

^ I hope they do. We need condos condos condos in close proximity to the downtown core. Build!! Throw up 30 of these for all I care.... its Everett. Stagger heights/materials, copy/paste, build. Stagger heights/materials, copy/paste, build. Throw up a whole skyline for all we should care we desperately need housing in the vicinity of downtown Boston and Cambridge. An entire skyline of condos, apartments, rentals, sec 8, lottery picks....who cares, build. Drop the hand of sim city out of the sky right onto the strip and make it rain housing.

Those are good anchors for North Point and Tremont Crossing.

I'm all for density and would welcome some apartment/condo towers here, but wtf is that supposed to mean? Seriously.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Im saying its a close by "urban core" next to Cambridge that has this tower in a major player. Im clearly exaggerating with 30, but how nice would it be to get a bunch of resi's thrown up around this thing? We need em in any nearby city that will allow it Chelsea, Quincy...etc. If Wynn plans on buying up all of 99 why not throw up a bunch of residential's and put the retail in the base? Win/win. Add a commuter rail stop and you have transit oriented development and theres hundreds and hundreds of acres that they can develop depending on their plans.

If I remember, before the housing bust, the Assembly Sq area or somewhere nearby in Medford had a development in the planning stages that would have ~30 story buildings. Why not Everett? I think that would be great.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Wynn would be very smart to take out that Strip Mall.
Build the condos and relieve the overall traffic flow going in and out of the strip mall area.
(This could help traffic in that area if the Strip mall got taken out.)

The casino is a serious game changer for the area.

These houses in around Boston are worth millions now.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I would be shocked if Wynn buys the Gateway center in the short term. Its owned by DDR, a major REIT. They will most likely hold out for a 5-5.5% cap rate with all the development in the area. Wynn just increased the value of the Gateway center big time. REITs generally are not interested in selling because of the tax implications and since DDR most likely has a low basis in the property, its most likely a long term hold/redev for them. Perhaps Wynn can structure a JV with them, but an outright sale is unlikely.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Guys, I know you're are all really excited about the possibility of new housing and redevelopment from car-centric suburban sprawl to an actual urban core, which will relieve housing pressure in the region and be an economic and environmental boon but lets focus on what really important here.

If they shut down that Costco I lose my quick access to $1.50 hot dogs. And that Can. Not. Stand.

True, a great loss indeed, but think about the replacement, an all you can eat Las Vegas style buffet!

There is a 750 unit apartment complex planned nearby in Chelsea off Everett Avenue.

Yeah. And one of the best-kept secrets of all time... discounted booze for EVERYONE. You don't need to be a member to get the deals on the liquor. They legally can't allow that. So walk in and buy the good stuff cheap, membership or no membership.
