Crain’s Chicago Business, December 5, 2020
The City of Chicago’s Request for Information on the development and operation of a world-class casino generated 11 detailed responses and many shared perspectives. A summary of the input suggests a preference for a downtown or near-downtown location, with proximity to accessible transportation and existing city amenities and attractions. Most respondents also indicated the project should have a hotel, dining and event space onsite. DMA was one of the organizations participating in the RFI process, a first step to moving a Chicago casino forward and maximizing its economic benefits.
