NEW: Worcester Gaming Facility Still On The Table

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

 

The Wyman-Gordon property, which has been the subject of talk about a possible slots parlor in Worcester, is now under agreement with Cambridge-based Carpenter & Company, Inc., according to a letter from City Manager Michael O'Brien to the City Council issued late Tuesday afternoon.

In a statement sent to the City by Carpenter & Company President and CEO Richard L. Friedman, the developer said his company has had "serious long term interest in developing a luxury hotel in Worcester." Friedman pointed out that his company is not a gaming developer and does not intend to become one.

"We are, however, interested in exploring how a gaming facility in Worcester would help the development and operations of a new hotel," Friedman said.

The details of the long-term option on the 14-acre vacant site were part of a private agreement and not publicly available at this time.

Friedman's statement not that the Wyman-Gordon property is under consideration for gaming use by "one or more highly qualified gaming companies" who have submitted applications to the state's Gaming Commission prior to the Jan. 15th deadline.

Applicants for the state's gaming licenses were required to submit a $400,000 non-refundable deposit as part of their application. However, the application process does not require that applicants specify a site or municipality for the gaming facility.
