Renderings for the hotel, posted by Chicago architecture firm KOO LLC, show that the hotel would face south and would feature both balconies and large picture windows so that guests could enjoy views in all seasons.
According to Curbed Chicago, the hotel will feature a 30,000 square foot rooftop bar and a restaurant at promenade level.
The new hotel is part of a larger effort called “Centennial Vision,” which has included a new large Ferris Wheel and additions to several attractions, including the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre.
