Construction has been completed on Chicago’s newbuild 14-story, 167,000-sq.-ft. Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market extended-stay hotel. Sterling Bay is the hotel’s developer, and Eckenhoff Saunders Architects was the architect. Skender served as the base building and interior construction manager. Wheelock Street Capital is the owner, and McKibbon Hospitality is the operator.
The hotel offers a third-floor lobby and first-floor future retail space. The pool, workout center and lounge are situated on the 14th floor, with 200 guestrooms on floors 4 through 13. The hotel’s exterior cladding comprises hand-laid masonry, precast concrete panels, unitized window wall systems, metal panels and a storefront system. Building information modeling was used to coordinate all site utility, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems around the post tension and reinforced concrete structure.
