We’ve been following the development of the Loews Hotel tower (435 North Park Drive) in Streeterville since back when it was just a sketch on paper and a pile of dirt. Today, amid much fanfare, the hotel finally opened to the public. Chicago Architecture Blog photographer Milosh Kosanovich was there to document the event. Look for more photos of the hotel’s interior features and finishes soon.
