“We are delighted to be collaborating with Wind Creek on their Southland property! It’s an impressive project and the fact that it’s in my hometown of Chicago makes it even more appealing. We look forward to sharing more details with you soon.  Something truly special is in the works,” said Fabio Viviani.

The partnership will include a steakhouse, food hall, in-room dining as well as banquets. Wind Creek Chicago Southland is expected to open in Spring 2024.

The casino and hotel project currently under construction includes a 73,000-square-foot casino on property within East Hazel Crest and parking garages on adjacent land in Homewood.

Wind Creek Hospitality’s budget for the entire project, including land acquisition, construction, and licensing fees, is about $529 million, the Chicago Tribune reported. Construction on the casino and hotel complex started last September.

The project also includes a 75,000-sq. ft. entertainment venue and a 252-room hotel.

The casino project is expected to create more 600 construction jobs during its development phase, benefiting the local community and economy. Once operational, the complex is projected to create approximately 800 permanent jobs.
