Looks like it is almost done, except maybe the inside!

Boston Globe
The old part of the power plant should be redeveloped and casino money would be the only conceivable way to make it happen in our lifetimes.

The newer part of the station shouldn't be shutdown. If anything we need to build out newer capacity here with Pilgrim being shut down and a need for local base load generating capacity.

If they don't ever put a pedestrian bridge over to Assembly, they are fools.

A well done pedestrian bridge (with continuity on both sides along the harbor/river) would really be key to tying together the urban fabric of this area. Hope it happens sooner rather than later.

4 or 5 years would be crazy fast speed in Massachusetts time, but maybe there is enough money around this to create some urgency.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

there has been talk of a pedestrian bridge over 93 connecting assembly to somerville for at least five years (as it is it's not really walkable in any meaningful way from the bulk of somerville. de facto, assembly is in medford), and nothing has actually happened at all. not sure if there's greater urgency to connect assembly to encore, but i'd wager a similarly slow (non)progress.

The big difference is a potentially interested third party with very deep pockets.

Its not their choice...nor Federal's (owner of ARow). There are about 15 agencies involved and the landing is on DCR land. The MBTA has a stake, Wyn, Federal Realty and Federal government over the waterway. Seems like it will take forever.
