The new Hilton Garden Inn coming to the small wedge of space on Wacker Place between the Church of Christian Scientists and the Chicago Motor Club Building is a bit of an oddball development for being so skinny, but the hotel is well on its way to filling out the site. Construction crews were first spotted in June, but now the new 27 story tower has its foundation and ground floor erected. The GREC Architects designed hotel tower will rise to an approximate height of 222 feet when it is completed. Located right off of Michigan Avenue and wedged in between two historic landmarks, the new tower will add 191 hotel rooms to the Loop.
