Bid farewell to yet another Meat Packing District stalwart, as the development frenzy in the West Loop continues to gobble up everything in its path.
Construction fences surround properties at 850 and 842 West Lake Street, the homes of Grant Park Packing Company and Vaia, Inc. Auto, as Heneghan Wrecking prepares to act on the demolition permit filed by the City of Chicago back on December 7. The site has been rumored to be the new home of a hotel from Shapack Partners.
**** UPDATE: Rumor no more. GREC Architects confirms their involvement in designing the 175-room Hoxton Chicago, a hotel to be built at the corner of Lake and Green Streets. You can see a rendering of the Hoxton Chicago below from Ennismore, the London-based developer of the Hoxton brand.
