Demolition is nearly complete for 800 W Lake Street, site of a new 21-story hotel in the Fulton Market area. In development by North Park Ventures, the building is set to accommodate 476 rooms as well as ground-floor retail.
Landmark Development has revealed updated plans for its proposed ONE Central mega-development located in the Near South Side. Poised to cover the existing Metra Weldon Yard, the site spans over 32 acres from E 14th Street to the north, Inner Lake Shore Drive to the east, McCormick Place to the south, and the CN rail tracks to the west.
Photos show continued work at 226 W Jackson Boulevard in The Loop, the site of Phoenix Development Partners‘ planned conversion of a 15-story office building into a space for two Hilton hotels. The original 1904 limestone and terra cotta structure was designed by Frost & Granger, and housed offices for both the North Western Railway and City Colleges of Chicago up until its re-designation. As part of the conversion, the developer agreed to rehabilitate the exterior walls of the landmarked buildings in exchange for Class L tax incentives.
Demolition permits were issued last month clearing the way for a 21-story hotel at 800 W Lake Street, located near the heart of the booming Fulton Market neighborhood. The new structure will rise to 265 feet at its roof, replacing three low-rise masonry buildings and parking lot space. Planned by North Park Ventures, the yet-to-be-named hotel will provide space for 476 rooms, as well as ground-floor commercial space.
