Hearing November 15 on double hotel project east of 49

Back To Front Page


The Chesterton Advisory Plan Commission will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15.

At that meeting planners will hold a public hearing on the primary plat for a double hotel project, located immediately to the north of the Speedway gas station and the Culver’s restaurant in Coffee Creek Center.

The Amerilodge Group of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., is proposing to build both a Holiday Inn Express and a Fairfield Inn & Suites on the site. The Fairfield Inn & Suites would feature 87 rooms in three stories and be built immediately east of Ind. 49. The Holiday Inn Express would feature 90 rooms in four stories and be built east of the Fairfield. The complex would be accessed by Matson Street and Blackwell Lane.

Preliminary Hearing

Planners will also hold a preliminary hearing on a 64-unit planned unit development being pursued by John Nekus and his JVJ Development, eyed for a heavily wooded 11-acre site located immediately behind the Chesterton Post Office.

Of those 64 units, 62 would be paired patio homes, along the lines of those on Texas Street, with two single-family homes thrown in for good measure. The main entrance to the development would be off South Calumet Road, just north of the Post Office, with a secondary entrance off Richter Street. The development would essentially back on the Westchester South subdivision, to the west.
