There's already a thread about Centennial Village on here..I would post it there.

The town is dissatisfied with the hotel because the developer was skimping out on design elements that were already agreed upon based on the renderings. A lot of people out there ((mostly haters of the town and this project)) are thinking that the town is just trying to make the developer do more than was asked and that is not the case. The developer did not follow through on their end and then they basically apologized and asked for forgiveness while also asking to retroactively amend their design changes into the plan. The town council and planning commission does have every right to be upset; however, they also need to be held accountable because with such a huge and important project, such details should not be missed. In Munster, if a homeowner so much as tries to build a shed in their backyard That was bigger than what is allowed with the permit and approvals,, the town will stop the project, fine them, and also force them to change back to what was approved or force the demolition of the structure. Obviously, the town does not want to **** off the developer but someone at the town needs to have their eyes glued to this project until completion. The more eyes, the better.

Well the developer is getting $15 million in public incentives for this project. When you give somebody $15 million dollars I don't think they should turn around and not build what they promised to build, not to mention do this on the FIRST building in the project. I do not think this bodes well and I believe part of the root problem stems from the fact that the developer really isn't a developer but some guy who does consulting at Deloitte. Why did the town think that this large project would go smoothly when partnering with a developer with limited experience? This outcome does not surprise me. Next time, tell said developer to go have a learning experience on some other town's dime.
