Please don't shoot the messenger. FWIW, I've heard the Revs have been poking around the Wellington Station area for years. Gateway Center is directly across the Orange Line from the new Encore Boston Harbor Casino. Coincedentally... Casino is phase one of 'the entertainment district of the Northeast' EVERETT — City leaders and Wynn Resorts executives said this weekend’s opening of the glittering $2.6 billion, 671-room Encore Boston Harbor casino resort is probably just the beginning of something even bigger: a massive hotel and entertainment complex on a once grim and heavily polluted stretch of the Mystic River. “Our idea,” said Matt Maddox, Wynn’s chief executive, at a news conference Friday, “is to continue to redevelop this area so that it’s known as the entertainment district in the Northeast.” Although he did not provide details on when the company might begin to expand, after Encore’s opening, Maddox said the company will learn what it’s missing. “Is it hotels? Is it arenas? What is it that needs to go here?” Maddox said Wynn Resorts has purchased 11 acres of land near the casino, giving the company space to realize broader ambitions. Wellington Station is within walking distance. Assembly Row is right across the river. In addition, I've heard rumblings that the Celtics are less than pleased with their current arrangement with TD Garden, and might also be eyeing some sort arrangement with Encore Boston in this same area. Obviously, this is still in the rumor stage, but it might actually have legs in terms of being something that's possibly workable.
