West Loop Hotel Boom Keeps Coming As Group Pitches 12-Story Hotel At Fulton Market And Carpenter

The proposal also includes a six-story office building.

  • Credibility:

WEST LOOP — The Fulton Market building boom has another entrant: a proposal for a 12-story hotel near the corner of Carpenter and Fulton Market streets.

Architecture firm Hartshorne Plunkard currently has its headquarters at the site. It proposes knocking that building and an adjacent auto body repair shop down to build the hotel and a six-story building.

The 147-foot-tall proposed hotel would be located at 1043 W. Fulton Market Street. The 88-foot-tall office building would be at 1041 W. Fulton Market St., according to a zoning application filed this month.

The developments are being pitched by the owners of the properties — 232 Carpenter, LLC and Silver Queen, LLC. and Hartshorne Plunkard.

The proposal, which would be near Google’s headquarters, is for a 205,000-square-foot hotel and 47,000 square feet of office space with 15 parking spaces. The project will also include 22,000 square feet of retail across the two buildings, according to paperwork filed with the city.

The architecture firm needs a zoning change from the city to proceed.

Hartshorne Plunkard did not return a request for comment.

The booming West Loop is a hotbed of new and proposed hotels.

Last month, a team of investors, as part of a crowdfunding campaign, unveiled plans to convert a dairy supply facility into a 13-story Standard Hotel.

Earlier this month, the Hoxton Hotel opened its 182-room building. And the long-awaited Nobu Hotel is expected to open its 115-rooms hotel with a 10,000-square-foot signature Nobu restaurant on Randolph on July 31.

The West Loop is also home to the Ace Hotel and Soho House.
