This Week's Boston Deal Sheet

Wynn Resorts completed its $25M purchase of a major portion of the Mystic Generating Station, leading some to speculate there are future plans to bring a long-awaited soccer stadium to the area.

Wynn Resorts acquired the Mystic Generating Station in Everett for $25M.

The 45-acre plot of land is across the street from Wynn's Encore Boston Harbor casino. The Las Vegas-based casino operator didn't disclose its plans for the property but hopes that development will complement Encore Boston and its expansion, the Boston Globe reported.

“Our goal for the purchase is to ensure that future development in the area is synergistic with our existing investment at Encore Boston Harbor, our planned development on Lower Broadway, and the broad planning of the Lower Broadway District by the City of Everett,” Wynn spokesperson Michael Weaver said in a statement.

The site had previously been eyed by The Kraft Group for a new Boston Revolution Stadium. Now with control of the property, Wynn might help Kraft's vision of a stadium finally come to fruition, the Globe reported. 

The acquisition builds on what was already an active 2023 for Wynn. In February, the state's gaming regulations allowed Wynn to expand its casino operation to a 13-acre site next door.
