Fairview Heights Council to discuss TGI Fridays development

News-DemocratJune 3, 2014 

— City Council members on Tuesday are scheduled to discuss redevelopment plans for the new TGI Fridays restaurant in town.

The existing TGI Fridays restaurant and adjoining hotel at 6900 N. Illinois St. have been closed. Plans call for the building to be demolished and a new $3 million, 8,800-square-foot TGI Fridays to be built at that site. The new restaurant is anticipated to open by August.

Last month, Council members approved a letter of intent with TGI Fridays to enter into a $190,000 sales tax rebate agreement for the restaurant's redevelopment.
