Illinois 15 complex delayed

Has anyone noticed this is not the first time they said we expect a name in two weeks. Normally they say one week. This has been going on over a year.

Do they have any names for at least one hotel? Can’t say you are going to build a hotel if no solid confirmation leads. Just like the convenience store was to be done last fall. Now a name but no time frame. This sounds like the big white elephant.

What has this project cost the taxpayers so far and keeps costing? If it does happen, how long will it last and if it fails how will the city recover the taxpayers’ money? If they’re struggling now, does that give a look of what is to come?
