EVERETT — It wouldn’t fit on the jet, and barely fit through the door, but Wynn Resorts managed to get an architectural model of its proposed $1.2 billion casino resort set up in Everett, 10 days before voters have their say on the project at a critical citywide referendum.
Like a carefully crafted set-piece for a Godzilla sequel, the $90,000 model went on display today under meticulously arranged spot-lighting at the Chelsea Street campaign office of Everett United, the pro-casino group financed by Wynn.
The model, trucked to Everett from Las Vegas in large crates, stuck closely to renderings that Las Vegas developer Steve Wynn has released in recent months. The project featured a bronze glass tower and a long promenade of restaurants and retail stores stretching down a peninsula that juts into the Mystic River. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
