Wrigleyville Area Proposed Hotel Complex Update

David Roeder, Chicago Sun-Times business reporter, writes today that the proposed hotel across the street from Wrigley is going to have to be scaled down:

Wrigleyville Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) said the developer hasn't made his case to the community. Steven Schultz wants to replace small retail buildings and parking lots on the south side of Addison Street with two buildings that would rise to 105 feet, about as tall as Wrigley Field's rooftop. The project is proposed for the block between Clark and Sheffield.

Schultz has said 105 apartments and a 137-room hotel, perhaps part of the Hyatt chain, would dress up the neighborhood. But Tunney said Schultz will have to come back with something more modest.

The alderman said he's concerned about precedent. A mid-rise building could become an excuse for taller projects. "We've got to be careful that 25 years from now the charm of Wrigley Field still includes a neighborhood," Tunney said.

Good for Tunney. This project is years away from completion. I'll keep you posted.
