At a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday celebrating the official opening of the Massachusetts Lottery’s new Columbia Point headquarters, State Treasurer Deborah Goldberg called the move from Braintree “an exciting new chapter” in the lottery’s history.
“The location is fantastic,” she said, citing the proximity of the JFK/UMass MBTA station to the new headquarters, which are housed in the Corcoran Jennison building at 150 Mt. Vernon St.
She also noted that students from nearby UMass Boston could play a big role in the agency’s continuing efforts to modernize and diversify. “We hope to involve them in many partnerships going forward, including having students as interns,” she said.
Before its recent move to Dorchester, the Lottery had been located in Braintree since the mid-‘90s. Officials noted that the company will “maintain a footprint” on the South Shore.
