Construction Update
Dirt Moving for New Near North Hotel

One of our more alert readers noticed that earth movers have started moving earth at the northwest corner of Clark and Huron Streets.  Clark and Huron is a former surface parking lot that has tried to better itself a number of times in the last decade, with the wheel of fortune finally landing on a 215-room hotel late last year.

Near North Spy Jody checked in to our tip line with pictures of 100 West Huron, or at least the ruckus and rubble that is preceding the NORR-designed hotel.

  • Loading dock: one
  • Parking spaces: zero
