Mystery (Moxy?) Hotel starts construction in River North

Moxy Hotel

Caisson work is underway at the new Moxy Hotel, 530 North LaSalle Street, in River North.

With little fanfare, Pepper Construction has begun foundation work on what some believe (C.A.B. included) will be a new Moxy Hotel in River North at 530 North LaSalle Drive. A permit was filed back in November for the site, calling for an 8-story hotel on caissons. Well, we can all agree there’s definitely caisson work going on, as the big blue Stalworth machines are ripping into the soil as we speak.

The named architect on the permit works at DLR Group. A blog post on DLR’s website names Moxy By Marriott as a brand they work with. The Marriott News Center page names Chicago as a destination for a new Moxy Hotelk in 2017. It’s funky math, but it kind of adds up. I’m sticking with the Moxy tag on this one until told I’m wrong.
