Former Mental Health Center Property

MHC PropertyAt approximately 280 acres, the property formerly occupied by the Tinley Park Mental Health Center is the single-largest development opportunity in Tinley Park. The Village has the opportunity to create a legacy project that can complement the entire Village.

The Village issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to three firms interested in developing the site. The three developers – Renaissance Downtowns Urban Holdings, Urban Street Group LLC and Melody Square – were among five firms that responded to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) the Village issued in January. Only firms that submitted the RFQ and met the qualifications were invited to submit a proposal.

The Mental Health Center RFP responses, linked above, are proposals only. The RFP responses in no way commit the Village to the plans, product mix or incentive requests presented. The purpose of the RFP process is to identify a development partner to maximize the MHC’s potential based on public open house comments, a MHC Committee’s direction (consisting of Trustee Younker, Trustee Glotz and staff) and SB Friedman’s recommendations. After a development team is selected, the Village Board and staff will work with the development team on the entitlement process and begin incentive negotiations.

The Village Board in January, 2019 approved an Exclusive Negotiation Rights Agreement (ENRA) with Melody Square, LLC. 
SB Friedman, the Village’s retained consultant, recommended that the Village enter into the ENRA with Melody Square to advance the development and potential acquisition process for the TPMHC property for a period of six months.

Update [July 2019]: In Spring of 2019, the Village was approached by Rick Heidner, part of the Melody Square team, about building a harness race track, casino, hotels, restaurant and other entertainment venues on the Tinley Park Mental Health Center site. This is made possible by recent legislation passed by the State of Illinois that expands gambling in the State and specifically authorizes a racetrack/casino in the south suburban area. The Village is still working with the State to secure the property while the developer must apply for a license from both the Illinois Gaming and Racing boards. At this point, the Village doesn't know what other developers may be seeking the same license; however, if it is approved, this could bring significant new tax revenue, jobs and other tourism-related businesses to Tinley Park.
