"Consistent with the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s interpretation of the Commonwealth’s gaming legislation, Mohegan Sun has approached the process of mitigation in a collaborative manner with surrounding communities, while accepting the full responsibility of funding all transportation improvements that are necessary to mitigate measured impacts. This approach has produced the nation’s largest resort casino mitigation package, which will address traffic and other impacts and provide benefits to 12 surrounding communities.
The supporting points keep on coming for Mohegan Sun Massachusetts. On top of independent praise for its superior location, heralded design, historic community agreements and best-in-class business partnerships, Mohegan Sun Massachusetts stands on the strongest financial platform. The project's strength comes thanks to operating performance of its other properties in the Northeast and its partnership with Brigade Capital Management.
"From every fiscal angle Mohegan remains a better deal for the community than the Wynn offering." That one sentence summarizes the opinion of the Boston Herald in today's editorial endorsing Mohegan Sun Massachusetts for the Greater Boston casino license.
With a nod to style and the environment, Mohegan Sun Massachusetts is earning some unmatched praise for its resort design. Based on points awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification program, the Revere destination resort will be the greenest casino in the nation. The resort will feature solar power, a greenhouse, electric vehicles and high efficiency lighting. But being sustainable doesn't mean you ignore smart, beautiful design.
Before Wynn abandoned Philadelphia it proposed what one critic called "a very generic high-rise," earning it a D grade for siting and a C – in design. That same design is now Wynn Everett. The Vegas developer apparently didn't give it much thought and the Massachusetts chapter of the American Institute of Architects isn't impressed.
