Preliminary plans have been approved for two hotels in Tinley Park.

Village officials in the southern Chicago suburb issued tentative approval for Top Hospitality to build a 118-room Residence Inn and a 125-room Courtyard Marriott, the Daily Southtown reported. They will rise near the intersection of La Grange Road and Interstate 80.

Top Hospitality plans to spend more than $36 million on the projects, which will be built on about 9 acres south of 183rd Street and White Eagle Drive. They will be north of a Country Inn & Suites and a Hilton Garden Inn.

At the village board meeting where officials approved the project, trustees also said they would support a resolution with Cook County to provide property tax breaks for the developer.

The village will hold a public hearing just before the Aug. 16 Village Board meeting at which residents can discuss the village annexing property for the project. Final approval is expected at that meeting.

Top Hospitality first proposed building the hotels simultaneously in 2020. Now it plans to begin work on the Residence Inn this fall and build the Courtyard hotel beginning in the spring of 2024. Both will have a pool, fitness center and lobby bar.

The village will invest more than $2 million to extend water and sewer lines west along 179th Street to serve the hotels. The village said the extension in the area, which has about 30 acres of vacant land, could also encourage future development.

The hotels, and another 108-room Holiday Inn rising at 18320 North Creek Drive, will add to 10 hotels in Tinley Park. Once complete, the village will have about 1,500 hotel rooms.
