McCormick Square Neighborhood Update

The New Year has brought some exciting new developments with it for our McCormick Square Neighborhood. We are truly looking forward to what the rest of this year has to bring!

We thought we would share just a few updates and happenings in the McCormick Square area:

If you were at the Chicago Auto Show this weekend, you would have heard about the release of McCormick Place’s Everyday Pale Ale Craft Beer! McCormick Place teamed up with BrickStone Brewery to brew their very own Pale Ale, using some of the hops grown on the rooftop garden of the West Building. Check out more on that here.

We also just learned that a beautiful vintage Motor Row Building was purchased – 2222 S. Michigan Avenue. We hope to see some new additions to this part of the neighborhood in the coming years.

A few places to check out in the Historic Motor Row:

  • Motor Row Brewery
  • Revel Motor Row – Opening 2017
  • Motor Row Galleries
  • Motor Row Tour

Another great addition to the neighborhood will be Hilton’s Triple-Brand Hotel. The Hilton will include Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, and Home2 Suites, opening late 2018. The Hilton complex will also connect to McCormick Place, Marriott and Hyatt.

A few quick facts:

  • Rooftop Dining Lounge
  • Two street level restaurants
  • Starbucks

In case you didn’t hear, the Event Center at McCormick Square was named Wintrust Arena, late last year. This multi-purpose building will host business meetings, conventions, concerts, sporting events and much more. We look forward to what this new space will bring to the neighborhood.

A few quick facts:

  • 10,000 seats
  • 2,000 parking spaces in walking distance
  • Easily accessible from the Green & Red Lines
  • Connections to Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, McCormick Place and Marriot Marquee

Keep checking back for more updates!
