Last week, Mayor Lightfoot announced that she has selected Bally’s Corporation to be the finalist, among five RFP respondents, to open a casino in the City, at the site of the Tribune Publishing Center, located at Chicago Avenue and Halsted Street. It was also announced that a temporary casino would open at the Medinah Temple, located at 600 North Wabash Avenue.
