Chicago has issued a $15 million permit for a new foundation and superstructure through the seventh floor for a proposed 30-story high rise hotel development at E. 11th and Wabush.

The permit relates to a two-flag hotel project owned by S.B. Yen’s Management Group, which Curbed Chicago reported earlier would include a 298-ft. structure that includes a 196-room Homewood Hilton, an extended stay Wabash Suites with 85 guest rooms, and approximately 3,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

Both hotels plan to share a new 145-car garage as well as other back-of-house amenities. Relatively unusual these days for a project of its size, the tower slated for 1101 S. Wabash is proceeding as-of-right within the existing confines of the zoning code. This means the project can move quickly as it has bypassed the zoning change that typically accompanies large proposals during the Planned Development (PD) approval process.

Lend Lease (US) Construction is listed as the general contractor. Key subtrades include: Masonry, Pepper Construction Company; electrical, Bonus Electric; plumbing, AMS Mechanical Systems, Inc.; and refrigeration and ventilation, Advance Mechanical.

The architect is Mary Ann Van Hook of Lothan, Vanhook Destefano Architecture LLC.
