Steve Wynn, founder and chairman of Wynn Resorts, met with Mayor Nutter last
week to discuss his plans for the new "Wynn top to bottom". He plans on taking
over the unsuccessful South Philadelphia Foxwoods Casino. The meeting discussed
plans for the new casino as well as how to establish a working relationship.
Nutter stated he explained to Wynn that the city wants to more accessibility to
the waterfront and neighborhood integration.
Wynn stated in the meeting he is considering buying the vacant property to the
north as well as the Sheet Metal Workers Local 19. This will be turned into a
hotel. Wynn is also planning to help traffic congestion by widening Reed and
Tasker Streets. This should alleviate the traffic on Columbus Boulevard. Wynn
asked that the city install a left turn signal at the Tasker traffic light.
Earlier that same day Wynn also met with the state's Gaming Control Board. He
presented drawings of the purposed casino. This meeting was 3 weeks ahead of his
deadline. The casino will not of neon. However it will have landscape lighting
in the front of the property. Wynn also plans on separating the casino from the
non-casino amenities. People from the local neighborhoods will be able to enjoy
the new facility without having to walk through the casino space.
Wynn Resorts still must have approval from state regulators to take control of
the Foxwoods property. Due to new gaming law, the gaming board may approve a
December 2019 opening.
