After lawsuit, crews reportedly working to address One Winnetka complaints
Developer David Trandel said he is working to address complaints by the village of Winnetka about the condition of his $98 million One Winnetka project site. The village earlier this month filed suit against Trandel, saying vacant buildings on the site have become nuisances. But Trandel said his crews now are cleaning up the black mold, garbage and other hazards in the buildings, which are set to be torn down to make way for the project. The development, which is set to break ground next year, would include 36 apartments, 15 condominiums, seven townhomes and 30,000 square feet of commercial space. [Winnetka Talk]

Hotel planned in Elk Grove Technology Park
A developer plans to build an 85-key hotel in the Elk Grove Technology Park to serve clients, vendors and visitors to the sprawling industrial complex in Elk Grove Village. The $10 million hotel would be built on 1.7 acres on the northwest corner of the 85-acre park. Schaumburg-based EquityRoots hopes to close on the purchase of the property from tech park developer Brennan Investment Group by the end of the year and to win village officials’ endorsement of a tax assessment reduction on the property for 12 years.

Invenergy CEO Polsky sells Michigan Avenue condo
Energy executive and philanthropist Michael Polsky sold a Michigan Avenue condo that he never lived in.

Plans for industrial complex at Homewood country club rile village
The owners of a country club in south suburban Homewood are looking to deannex the property from the village, whose officials oppose a developer’s plan to build an industrial complex on the property. Arizona-based Diversified Partners is in talks to buy the Calumet Country Club at 175th Street and Dixie Highway and has proposed a number of different possible development scenarios. Now the firm is saying it wants to build more than 500,000 square feet of warehouse space on the land, which village official oppose. That’s led the club’s investors to seek deannexation in hopes of winning approval for the plan from nearby Hazel Crest. [Daily Southtown]
