A new $350 million development is being planned by White Lodging at the site formerly occupied by the Radisson and Star Plaza Theatre.
White Lodging announced Wednesday it plans a more than $350 million development, dubbed The Farm at Crossroad Commons, that the Merrillville-based company called "transformative." The 40-acre development is a "mixed use" project that will combine hotels, event spaces, office space and restaurants, according to a White Lodging presentation.
