Developer Offers Foxborough Residents Glimpse Of Proposed Casino
BOSTON — Las Vegas developer Steve Wynn has unveiled a proposed design for a casino in Foxborough.
The CEO of Wynn Resorts has mailed a brochure and 20-minute DVD showing the basic design to thousands of Foxborough residents.
An artist’s rendering shows a broad building that appears to be about seven stories high. It’s designed to look like a cabin, with a forest theme. The plan includes a skating rink that could be used by residents year-round.
The casino would be part of a complex with a hotel, restaurants and spa. The billion-dollar development would be built on land off of Route 1 belonging to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
Town residents have to approve the casino proposal before it could be considered by the state for a casino license. The plan has run into opposition from many residents who worry that a casino would add to traffic congestion and crime.
