Ten weeks since our last update, and progress at the site of the Hoxton Hotel in Chicago has been moving along nicely, the topped off structure now almost completely clad. Located at 200 N Green St in the heart of the city's Fulton Market district, the 12-storey, 175-key future hotel has been designed by GREC Architects to capture the essence of the neighbourhood's historic industrial aesthetic and material character.
To these ends, the main tower of the Hoxton Hotel rises above a traditional redbrick podium level, designed to evoke an early 20th century warehouse vibe, while the tower's distinctive grid-pattern windows provide a modern spin on the area's post-industrial charm.
Viewed above, the structure has been composed of three separate layers, the ground floor to face the street via the use of commercial-sized rectilinear windows, while the top portion of the podium will be faced entirely in brick, leaving the tower to roughly replicate the grid window pattern common to all three.
Slated for completion in 2019, the mixed-use Hoxton Hotel will include two floors of office space, a rooftop terrace complete with Boka-branded restaurant, along with all of the accoutrements of a modern, urban hotel.
