Mr. Wynn Goes to Beacon Hill; Big O.K. for Kendall Tower; More!

CAMBRIDGE—The space will go toward building that 22-story tower: "A Kendall Square deal between Boston Properties and the city got Planning Board approval Tuesday night. The board recommended that the City Council approve the sale of a 8,660-square-foot portion of city-owned sidewalk so Boston Properties can move forward on building a 200,000-square-foot residential tower. The portion is along the eastern edge of Ames Street, between Broadway and Main Street." [Day, 2nd item]

EVERETT—Unclear what was discussed, but we'll bet it was the casino-resort: "Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn made a low-key visit to the Hub Monday, taking meetings with legislators, including the rep who authored the state's gaming legislation, and state Gaming Commission investigators, whose probes led him to decry Bay State background checks as heavy-handed." [Herald]

BROOKLINE—It's an extended-stay: "A new 130-room hotel will soon come to Route 9 in Brookline after the town's zoning board of appeals approved a new Homewood Suites by Hilton Thursday." [Boston.com]
