200 North Green
Lake & Green
What’s there now: Several older one and two story warehouses
What’s going in: A boutique hotel with 170 rooms, office space, and street-level retail
With the success of the Soho House Hotel and the neighborhood’s rep for destination dining the West Loop is seeing a not unexpected boom in hotel development. But while other parts of the city have been betting on towering 400-room lodging, developers in the West Loop have been more sensitive to both the areas ascetic characteristics and increasingly high-end clients by sticking to boutique hotel designs. Thus we get 200 N Green by the same firm, Shapack Partners, that did Soho House. Featuring an industrial steel and glass design, the expected development with not only bring more tourists and travelers to the area, but will add two floors of office space for the neighborhood’s growing creative professional presence.
