Encore Boston Harbor

The Encore Boston Harbor Resort & Casino lies on a 33-acre parcel of rehabilitated land in Everett, Massachusetts previously used as a chemical plant. The 27-floor resort is the largest, private, single-phase development in the state and has generated thousands of jobs for the region. The resort features a modern hotel housing more than 670 luxe rooms, a 210,000 sq. ft. casino, 37,000 sq. ft. ballroom, conference/convention spaces, a variety of fine dining and casual restaurants, retail shops, and a spa. In December 2019, the U.S. Green Building Council certified the building as LEED Platinum.

“From design, documents, creativity and follow-through, CMA is a great and reliable partner who are consummate professionals in the foodservice design industry.”

– DERUYTER O. BUTLER, A.I.A, EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF ARCHITECTURE, WYNN DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

Also consisting of eleven teaching kitchens, a hospitality suite with exterior terrace/patio, a hospitality management classroom containing a demonstration hotel room/bathroom and full-size front reception desk, the Institute houses a wine classroom with climate-controlled wine storage, staff offices, conference room,
general classrooms, computer lab, and a full-service loading dock, all designed to meet the criteria for the LEED Silver credential. A 50-seat teaching restaurant, 181 Palmer Dining Room, provides fine dining to the public and serves as a venue for business meetings downtown. The academic building, created with natural materials and a sustainable, energy-efficient system, is used to facilitate catering functions throughout the campus, and also serves as an integral part of the recruitment plan by hosting national cooking competitions.
