Vacant Historic Hotel to be Reused as Transitional Housing

Plans for the transformation of the art deco Viceroy Hotel date back to the Daley administration. The project will be financed by both state funds and the current mayor's revamped tax-increment financing program.

"Like many of its former residents, the historic art deco building on the Near West Side has been down on its luck, sitting vacant since 2003.

Now, wholesale renovations are set to begin within weeks to transform the former flophouse into affordable housing for the homeless and people recently released from prison."
