Progress Update: The Hilton Hotel combo rises in the South Loop

1101 South Wabash

Lendlease continues upward on the Hilton Homewood Suites/Hilton Garden Inn in the South Loop.

That’s not just a hotel Lendlease is building at 1101 South Wabash Avenue in the South Loop; it’s two hotels. The combination Hilton Homewood Suites and Hilton Garden Inn got started last winter, and is at, or near, the half-way point of its 30-story goal. Two architecture firms,  Lothan Van Hook DeStefano Architecture and Pappageorge Haymes Partners, were involved in the design, one for each hotel segment.

  1. I’m still trying to find out if the “30 story” height is from the parking garage up or from the ground up. Any idea how that works?

    • It’s generally from ground level. parking decks are still counted as “floors.” Sometimes there is confusion when a building is measured at a certain number of stories, but some are below grade. This hotel will be 30 stories from sidewalk to top.

      • I called the alderman office and they said this was a 29 stories building. I’m still trying to confirm the height of it as the initial plans had it as 310Feet. I do recall there was a change of number of parking spots therefore changing the height of it. Do you have that information on how tall this is going to be ?
