MGM Springfield Purchasing Properties for Expansion

The MGM Springfield is looking to expand and has just finalized $16 million worth of purchases in the South End, where they are looking to buy properties to be able to go ahead with their $800 million casino project. The first purchases were made public on Monday, but many more are expected to become public once purchased.

MGM Springfield has bought several properties, including the former MassMutual HQ at 1200 Main Street, 1156-1178 Main Street which was the city’s first cinema, 300 State Street to 48 Howard Street, Bliss Street Property, 1106-1114 Main Street and finally another property at Bliss Street.

Many of the buildings were vacant already, making the purchase quite easy. Others however were not that easy due to them being vacant or due to their historic significance. The MGM has made a promise to keep all historic facades as is, ensuring that the town’s history isn’t destroyed by a casino development.

The construction of the new casino is expected to begin in 2015, where the new modern casino will feature all the latest games, entertainment and restaurants one could imagine.
