Possession of Illiana Hotel

The City of Whiting has officially taken possession of the former Illiana Hotel (119th Street and Atchison Avenue) via the County property tax sale process. This action was necessary in order to facilitate a more expedient redevelopment of the building. The City’s plans will be to assess the building’s overall condition, secure and stabilize the structure and then seek a partnership with a private developer to fully renovate the facility.
