The company has declined to continue the investigation into who made those calls, or to file charges. Police say their overall investigation should be complete by the end of the week.

The proposal includes total restoration of the current building and would create 112 studio apartments. The commission agreed the idea brings a much needed uplift and development to the East Ogden Avenue corridor that the city has been working toward over the years. The proposal now goes to Naperville City Council for final approval.
