South suburban casino proposed
EAST HAZEL CREST, Ill. — A company that operates casinos on behalf of a native American tribe in Alabama is seeking a license to open a casino south of Chicago.
It would be built on a 24-acre site southwest of the interchange of I-80 and Halsted, on property located in East Hazel Crest and Homewood.
Officials with Wind Creek Hospitality say the initial phase of the project, estimated to cost $275 million, would include a casino, an entertainment venue for live music, three restaurants, and two bars.
East Hazel Crest, Homewood, and dozens of other communities in the area would share in a portion of casino revenue.
