New Tinley Park hotels in line for tax break

Tinley Park village officials endorsed a tax incentive for a $33 million project to build two hotels near the LaGrange Road interchange with Interstate 80. The project would involve building a 125-room Courtyard by Marriott costing about $16 million and a 118-room Marriott Residence Inn costing about $16.7 million. The Courtyard also would have a banquet facility. Village trustees this week gave initial approval to the incentives, which would lower the property tax assessments on the properties for 12 years.

Lawsuit against JLL proceeds after judge’s ruling

A federal judge denied JLL’s request to toss a lawsuit alleging it illegally blocks companies from using nonunion labor for projects at the Chicago office buildings it runs. The August lawsuit by shared-office provider Wacker Drive Executive Suites said Chicago-based JLL conspired with unions to prevent tenants from hiring nonunion contractors for construction, maintenance and other jobs. JLL had asked a judge to toss the lawsuit, saying in part any union-only rules it enforces are at the behest of a building’s landlord. [Crain’s]
