Suburban outmall mall redevelopment heads to court
A joint venture that is working to redevelop the site of a former outlet mall is taking the village of Huntley to court. The venture, comprising The Capital Companies, the Prime Group and Craig Realty Group, is seeking to rezone the property to allow for office and industrial uses with plans to build three speculative warehouses on the site. Huntley trustees rejected the plan, saying it won’t generate enough jobs or tax revenue. The developer trio wants the court to overrule the zoning order. [Daily Herald]
