DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — Chris and Jeri Collins say the development of Bresee Tower and two other downtown buildings will cost $35 to $40 million. 

They plan to use all private and personal money for the project, which they say will include a 1920s-themed hotel, speak easy and indoor amusement park. They’ve also purchased the old Rick’s Furniture building and are trying to buy the annex connected to the tower. Their goal is to finish in about a year.
