Hundreds of new hotel rooms could be coming to Fulton Market. Two new hotel developments have been proposed for the area, totaling more than 700 new hotel rooms.
Developers for both projects recently presented their proposals at a pair of community meetings. Together they call for adding another 735 guest rooms and introducing new restaurants to the area.
One project aims for a Standard Hotel to go in at 1234 W Randolph. Developers scaled down the proposed building from 23-stories to 16-stories in an L-shaped design.
The building also calls for a rooftop pool and bar, a restaurants and a public plaza. The developer hopes to begin construction later this spring.
A separate project is planned for 800 W Lake. This development calls for a rooftop restaurant and more than 470 guest rooms, spread across two hotel brands. Developers on this particular project hope to begin construction next summer and open in spring of 2021.
