Skender says that it has broken ground on the newest Hyatt House hotel in the heart of Chicago’s Fulton Market.
The new 14-story, 167,000-sq.-ft. hotel will be the first hotel in the Fulton Market district to cater to extended-stay corporate travelers, and includes amenities such as an indoor pool and multiple green roof, according to a press statement.
Scheduled to open in summer 2019, the hotel building will offer a first-floor lobby and future retail space. The pool, workout center and lounge will be built on the 14th floor, with 200 guest rooms on floors 4-13.
Skender notes that its subcontractor labor force to build the hotel will include local community hires from the surrounding West Loop neighborhood, as well as ample participation from minority-owned business enterprise (MBE) and women-owned business enterprise (WBE) firms.
