History [ edit ]
Proposals [ edit ]
MGM Springfield was one of three proposals in the city of Springfield, Massachusetts for the Western Massachusetts casino license. Casinos were also proposed for Holyoke, Palmer, and West Springfield. On December 2, 2012, MGM Springfield and Penn National's Springfield proposal became the remaining two proposals for Springfield when Ameristar withdrew its Springfield proposal for the former Westinghouse site.
On April 30, 2013, Mayor Dominic Sarno selected MGM Springfield as the winning proposal for the City of Springfield, defeating the Penn National proposal for the north end of the city, and on July 16 Springfield voters approved the casino application, making MGM Springfield the state's first proposal to win voter approval in its host community. MGM was then in a three-way race with Hard Rock 's West Springfield proposal and Mohegan Sun 's Palmer proposal. On September 11, 2013, West Springfield voters voted to block the Hard Rock proposal, leaving only MGM and Mohegan sun in the race for the license. MGM Springfield won the bid for the Western Massachusetts license on November 6, 2013, when Palmer voters blocked the Mohegan Sun proposal, leaving MGM Springfield as the only Western Massachusetts proposal to win voter approval. (Had either Hard Rock or Mohegan Sun won voter approval, the state's gaming commission would have had to make the final decision.)
MGM officially received the license on June 13, 2014. It joined two other license winners: Penn National, which was awarded the slot parlor license, and Wynn Massachusetts, which was awarded the Eastern Massachusetts Region A casino license. As of Nov. 6th 2014, they now have their region B license

and is expected to open in 2018.
On November 4, 2014, a referendum attempting to ban casinos in the state failed.
The construction of the casino will require the demolition of some buildings in downtown, including the partial demolition of one on the National Register of Historic Places.
MGM design [ edit ]
On September 22, 2015, MGM unveiled a redesigned site plan for the project, abandoning the 25-story glass-facade hotel on State Street, in favor of a 6-story hotel, to be located on Main Street. The changes also include the reduction of the parking garage to one floor, and the market-rate apartments being relocated off-site.
MGM has pledged to create about 3,000 permanent jobs to benefit the local community job market. The company announced that it will have various job descriptions available, including security officer, assistant executive housekeeper, food and beverage manager, host person, “21 dealer,” concierge, assistant front desk manager, front desk clerk and housekeeper, a spokeswoman said, as some examples.
