A planned 12-story hotel at 1528 N Wells Street in Old Town is once again progressing, as indicated by a recent demolition permit issued for the site’s remaining structure. The permit, granted at the beginning of this month, lists National Wrecking Company as the contractor and will involve the removal of a three-story building at 1520 N Wells Street. The replacement hotel, which received its initial foundation permit in 2022, will add 203 rooms along the Wells Street commercial corridor.
