Skender says that it has broken ground on the newest Hyatt House hotel in the heart of Chicago’s Fulton Market.
The new 14-story, 167,000-sq.-ft. hotel will be the first hotel in the Fulton Market district to cater to extended-stay corporate travelers, and includes amenities such as an indoor pool and multiple green roof, according to a press statement.
Scheduled to open in summer 2019, the hotel building will offer a first-floor lobby and future retail space. The pool, workout center and lounge will be built on the 14th floor, with 200 guest rooms on floors 4-13.
Sterling Bay is the hotel’s developer, while the project’s architect is Eckenhoff Saunders Architects.
Skender notes that its subcontractor labor force to build the hotel will include local community hires from the surrounding West Loop neighborhood, as well as ample participation from minority-owned business enterprise (MBE) and women-owned business enterprise (WBE) firms.
