After lots of foundation work — not to mention the demolition of the two-story parking deck previously on the site — Lendlease is sending the new Hilton Homewood Suites vertical at Wabash Avenue and 11th Street in the South Loop.
The 30-story tower, designed by Lothan Van Hook DeStefano Architecture and developed by Hinsdale’s S.B. Yen Management Group, will start with parking up to the 7th floor, then rise upward with an amenity level on the 8th floor, hotel rooms from 9 to 23, corporate suites on floors 24 through 29, capped off with another level of creature comforts on the 30th floor.
The garage demolition was permitted in January of last year. Ground was broken in December 2016; completion is expected late next year.
