Encore Boston Harbor
Roger Thomas-designed Encore Boston Harbor now open
Now open – 671 Rooms
Totaling $2.6 billion in single phase development, this is reportedly the country's most expensive resort development for 2019.
Designed by Roger Thomas, EVP of Wynn Design, Encore Boston Harbor has structural and design elements reminiscent of the Las Vegas and China properties yet remains Bostonian with the incorporation of known local New England provisions and hospitality names.
The entry drive has Scotch pine trees individually collected from the open fields of Western New York State. The porte cochere has a seven-foot polished convex mirror sculpture named Torus by David Harber centered in a parterre garden, and a custom brick paved floral entry carpet. Inside, there are botanicals and the newest Preston Bailey floral carousel at the center surrounded by four 20-foot, multi-trunk ficus trees. Floral mosaic inlays decorate the perimeter walkways as a curved escalator rises in the back, all leading toward culinary and entertainment.
The 210,000-square-foot gaming area is divided into two levels, with high ceilings and red Murano glass chandeliers transplanted from their original home, the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. The first floor has over 3,100 slot machines, 143 table games and a casino bar located at the heart of the casino beneath a grand staircase. An 88-table Poker Room on the second level is flanked by terraces overlooking the gaming floor. Located off the main casino floor, the gaming area has a total of 53 slot machines, video poker and reel games, as well as two private high-limit gaming rooms.
