US: Hotel Zachary, a 173-key lifestyle hotel, has opened near Chicago’s Wrigley Field.

Built by Walsh Construction, the seven-storey, 238,000-square-foot hotel development includes 173 guest rooms and a variety of Chicago-based retail and restaurant offerings.

The design of the hotel pays homage to its namesake, Zachary Taylor Davis, the Chicago Architect who designed Wrigley Field in 1914. Hickory Street Capital, owner of Hotel Zachary, worked closely with Davis' family throughout the entire development process to ensure his legacy was celebrated. Stantec Architecture and Studio K Creative designed a modern version of the early 20th century architecture.

Walsh served as the general contractor and began demolition of an existing structure in March 2016 and later broke ground in July. Walsh and design team members worked over the next 21 months to deliver the new hotel ahead of schedule in March 2018.

"We championed the soft skills on this project; we were a partner everyday with our customer to make sure their goals were achieved," said project manager Nehal Desai. "We are very proud of the product we delivered and the relationships we developed along the way."
