Hilton Tri-Brand Hotel

Location:Chicago, Illinois
Client: McHugh Construction Company
Project description: Antunovich Associates worked with The James McHugh Construction Company to develop a new mixed-use project in the McCormick Place/Motor Row district of Chicago on a 109,106 square foot site. The 466-room hotel has 21 stories and rise to a height of approximately 250 feet. As Hilton’s first tri-brand property, the hotel includes Hilton Garden Inn, Home2 Suites, and Hampton Inn brands. The brands  share support facilities on the first three floors along Michigan Avenue and East Cermak Road, including dining areas, a fitness center, pool, and meeting rooms.

The hotel also incorporates a historical building within the Motor Row District located immediately south of the hotel site. The South Michigan Avenue facade was restored with new windows and storefront systems, and the structure rehabilitated with a connection to the hotel on the first and fourth floors. The hotel tower rises above the 3-story base and takes on a more modern aesthetic through the use of floor-to-ceiling window wall and composite metal panel systems.

As part of this project, a new pedestrian bridge was constructed over South Indiana Avenue. This bridge connects the third-floor meeting room level of the hotel to the existing McCormick Place West facility. The new bridge is of similar design to the existing pedestrian bridges at McCormick Place.

Ground floor tenant spaces and the hotel rooftop contains restaurants and night life, activating the gateway to the historic Motor Row District.
