Facts

  • Originally opening as a Holiday Inn in 1971, it abruptly closed at the end of 1974.
  • In 1978, it underwent a $2.5 million renovation and reincarnation as the Sheraton Hotel that opened in 1979. It closed in 1985 and has been vacant ever since.
  • The 100-foot microwave relay tower on the roof was completed in 1983 to serve as a navigational aid for aircraft landing at the Gary/Chicago International Airport.
  • A failed 1989 redevelopment proposal, the Atrium Plaza, would have resulted in a three-story, glass enclosed atrium at the base to compliment the renovated hotel.
  • A 1993 proposal called for the hotel to be renovated and utilized as a city hall annex.
  • A 1998 proposal by Trump Hotels and Resorts called for completely refurbishing and rebranding the hotel as a 276-room Genesis Hotel.
  • A proposal conceived in 2001 called for a $31 million renovation into a Hilton Garden Inn to open by October 2003.
  • The last proposal to rehabilitate the structure came in July 2006, with a Chicago developer proposing a $6-8 million rehabilitation into retail space, residential condominiums, and a small number of hotel rooms.
  • The city ultimately decided to demolish the abandoned hotel in 2014. Asbestos was removed from the structure prior to a story-by-story demolition of the building.
