Construction Update
Loews and Behold

Loews Hotel Tower under construction

Streeterville’s newest skyscraper continues sprouting skyward.

The Lowes Hotel tower (435 North Park Drive) has grown talk enough that its possible to get a sense of its visual impact on the area.

The building’s main shaft is rising to the east of the tower crane installed a few months ago. The remainder of the building will be of lesser stature and contain ballrooms and meeting rooms and back-of-the-house functions for the hotel.

The tower portion will have 400 hotel rooms, and 398 apartments and should rise to 635 feet.

The building was designed by friends-of-the-blog, SCB. Completion is expected in 2015.
