Taking ninth place in our year-end construction countdown, the 28-story hotel at 150 E Ontario Street is gearing up to rise in Streeterville. Developed by The Prime Group, the 345-foot-tall project will be the next location for the Spanish hotel brand RIU Hotels and Resorts, offering a total of 388 rooms. Additionally, a ground-level cafe will be situated at the southeast corner of the tower base.
Lucien LaGrange Studio has designed a classically-styled structure that stands out from other new projects due to its unique material palette. This palette is composed of painted architectural concrete and aluminum-framed windows, rather than the more typical brick or glass curtain wall facades.
The property is connected to multiple transit options, eliminating the need for on-site parking. Within a one-block radius, there is access to bus services for Routes 2, 3, 10, 26, 125, 143, 146, 147, 148, 151, and 157. Additionally, the CTA Red Line is a short eight-minute walk southwest at Grand station.
The W.E. O’Neil Construction Company is serving as general contractor on the project, with an expected completion date of 2024.

The ninth place New York counterpart to Chicago is 520 Fifth Avenue in Midtown, where developer Rabina has planned a 995-foot mixed-use tower. The first supertall in New York’s 2022 countdown, this 76-story structure will house 98 residential units, commercial space, and four cellar levels.
KPF is the architect, while Suffolk Construction is serving as general contractor. With Excavation work soon to give way to vertical construction, a full completion is anticipated for spring 2026.
