CHICAGO | Marriott Marquis - McCormick Place | 176m | 576ft | 51 fl | U/C




----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHICAGO | Marriott McCormick Place | ??? FT | 53 FLOORS

This figures to be a speedy delivery given that's been green lighted and obviously is a major hotel chain.

This would be a peak highrise that would extend the Chicago Skyline substantially south from downtown towards the convention center.

McPier picks Marriott Marquis for McCormick hotel
Board continues trying to acquire properties for project

By Kathy Bergen, Chicago Tribune reporter

September 14, 2013
The planned 1,200-room convention hotel to be built just west of McCormick Place will be operated by Marriott International Inc., convention officials decided Friday.

The hotel, expected to open in late 2016 next to the West Building, will be a Marriott Marquis, the company's premium convention center brand..........

The $400 million hotel is part of a larger project that will include a multiuse arena that will host DePaul University basketball and a 500-room boutique hotel...........

The authority's board took two more steps toward assembling the necessary properties for the project.

It voted to pay $1.95 million for one of four storefront properties it hopes to purchase in the 2200 block of South Michigan Avenue for development of restaurants and clubs adjacent to the planned Marriott.

The property, at 2215 S. Michigan Ave. in the Motor Row historic district, does not house an ongoing business, according to the authority...........

Updated McCormick Place Redevelopment Master Plan Released



Quote:
Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Reps from the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority (aka McPier) presented the latest, updated master plan for the $400 million McCormick Place entertainment district that will include a 55 story hotel, multipurpose arena, new data center and the reuse of the landmark American Book Company Building. The presentation introduced a new design of the Marriott Marquis, but focused primarily on the new 12 story data center, the Rees House relocation and traffic studies. The ginormous hotel will contain 1,200 rooms and McPier reps hope that the new structure will become a beacon and a symbol of pride for the neighborhood. However, planning for the new data center required a bit more care, as the current building has been seen as a major source of noise pollution by residents of the neighborhood. One thing Alderman Pat Dowell did make very clear was that the community wants McPier to include a park space in the massive redevelopment project, otherwise the neighborhood would veto the plan.

DePaul Unveils Updated Renders of César Pelli Designed Arena



Quote:
Wednesday, June 11, 2014

DePaul University has released updated renderings of its future arena, which will become the centerpiece of the $400 million McCormick Place entertainment district. The arena, formally named McCormick Place Event Center and designed by Connecticut- based starchitecture outfit Pelli Clarke Pelli, has received a few aesthetic changes since renderings first appeared last September. The arena's roof has been altered, with a tighter, more exaggerated sloping surface. Inside of the arena, the new renderings offer a bit more detail than the previous images, and show a design that looks very similar to its previous mock-up, minus the placement of support pillars. Construction is estimated to cost $173M with DePaul kicking in $70M. McPier is aiming for a Spring 2017 completion of the McCormick Place overhaul.

McCormick Place Hotel and Arena Construction To Start In Early '15



Quote:
Tuesday night, the 3rd ward's alderman Pat Dowell hosted a public meeting where McCormick Place representatives presented an update on the ongoing development project to expand the convention facility's footprint by constructing a new Pelli Clarke Pelli designed arena and events center, a new high rise hotel and convention center, as well as a new data center. The meeting was primarily meant to address neighborhood residents' concerns about the traffic and parking implications of the new construction and facilities, but there were a few updates about the buildings themselves.

The 51 story hotel building, set to be a Marriott Marquis with 1,200 rooms and considerable conference and event space, as well as the 10,000 seat stadium, which will host DePaul University's basketball games and be available for concerts and other events, will both start construction in January 2015. The stadium should be completed by February 2017, with the hotel's completion following in May.
