On Easter Monday we told you that the city had issued a foundation permit for the hotel sammitch planned for 108 North Jefferson Street in the West Loop. Well, quick like a bunny, The Chicago Architecture Blog’s Daniel Schell hopped over to check it out.  Lo and behold, work is well underway.

When it’s complete, the building will have a Hampton Inn and a Homewood Suites hotel.  It will rise 250 feet and 23 stories into the air and have 338 rooms.


Location: 108 North Jefferson Street, West Loop
