The party scene on Hubbard Street is getting a few hundred more visitors. A new hotel has been proposed for the parking lot at the northwest corner of Hubbard and LsSalle.

430 North LaSalle will rise 17 stories into the River North sky, directly across the street from the 45-story 400 North LaSalle condominium tower.

The architecture firm is a new one to our ears: Saroki Architecture, out of Birmingham, Michigan.  If you’re unfamiliar with Birmingham, it can be described as deep deep deep deep suburban Detroit.  According to its web site, most of Saroki’s commercial experience thus far has been in restaurants, supermarkets, and small hotels.   Perhaps if they can make it here, they can make it anywhere, and we’ll see a lot more of that name.

In case you’re worried about the little pub to the north at 444 North LaSalle, don’t fret.  It’s not part of this project.
