The Prime Group’s 28-story hotel at 150 E Ontario Street is fast approaching structural completion in the Streeterville neighborhood. Slated to join the RIU Hotels and Resorts portfolio, the 345-foot edifice will feature 388 guest accommodations, complemented by an expansive lobby and an adjoining cafe positioned at the ground floor’s southeast corner.
Designed by Lucien LaGrange Studio, the building showcases a white masonry facade, lending it a contemporary yet classically-inspired aesthetic. Architectural nuances such as terraced setbacks, a bifurcated crown embellished with prominent cornices, and evenly spaced columns add to its distinct architecture.
Strategically located less than a block from Michigan Avenue, the development offers close access to various public transit options. Bus stops servicing Routes 2, 3, and 10 are situated within a block’s distance, and the CTA Red Line is accessible through an eight-minute walk southwest to Grand station.
W.E. O’Neil Construction Company is overseeing the project as the general contractor. The development is on track for completion by Q1 2024.
