Hyatt Place on Franklin Street under construction

One of The Loop’s new hotels is about to round the corner from hole in the ground to recognizable shape.

Loop Spy Marilyn sent in these photo of construction at the Hyatt Place at 28 North Franklin Street will transform a surface parking lot into a 18-story hotel with 206 rooms positioned between Chicago’s two financial hubs: LaSalle Street and Wacker Drive.
