The Chicago Plan Commission has given developers the green light to move forward with their plan to build a new hotel at 430 North LaSalle Street.
The proposal from Porritt Group, out of Troy, is for an 18-story building with up to 199 hotel rooms. There will also be ground floor retail space, and a roof top pool and bar. It’s designed by Victor Saroki of Saroki Architecture in Birmingham, Michigan. The Saroki design shows a building 200 feet tall, though Porritt is permitted to best that by 35 feet.
A rendering of the building on the Porritt Group’s web site shows the hotel bearing the Andaz flag. However, Hyatt has made no announcement about opening an Andaz-branded hotel in Chicago yet. Going back to the beginning of 2015, the chain has only announced locations in Vienna, Scottsdale, Palm Springs, Singapore and Ottawa.
