Hard Rock Hotel/ One World Hotel/40 stories/ 500 million

I've never stayed in a Hard Rock (been between quite a few of 'em), and I don't particularly care to stay in one, but I've broken down and given in, for just once, to stay two nights in early-mid July at the one on Chicago's North Michigan Ave. (in the historic Carbide and Carbon Bldg.).  It's the actual building itself that has fascinated me for decades

Yes, way cool building. Love a report post your stay there.

You said July and for a moment there you had me thinking you were in town for the Dead show, but you said mid-July and the Dead play 4th July weekend. No doubt you will encounter a few Deadheads who haven't yet found their way out of town. Be nice to them, they mean no harm.

I'll be at the Chicago Hard Rock July 7, returning to Nashville on the 9th, so actually it's "more early" than mid (not mid at all really), but I will be missing the event itself, since I'll actually be en route from Vancouver, BC for Portland on that Saturday the 4th, not to head for Chicago until the late afternoon of the 5th.  I'm used to "unorthodox" encounters, so before something "smolders", I usually just materialize somewhere else.  At any rate, thanks for the heads-up.

No rendering in the article however, and since the Grand Hyatt failed, we shall see.

I wonder if this the a rendering for the old, cancelled project? Is there a link to this article?

That's a massive footprint for that spot.  I am a little skeptical.

I am very skeptical of this as well. Granted, I don't know anything nor do I have an inside source, but the quality of the rendering combined with some of the promises for this building just says "vision" more than realistic proposal to me. I like the idea of a Hard Rock Hotel with entertainment options for all ages (which is something I think that downtown needs) but I have very little faith that they will be able to build a six story shopping mall along with this massive hotel.

In the words of William W. " I smell Cheese", I cant find much on these folks on-line. Who are they? Where did they come from? Where is the money? Who are the partners?

 

At this point, too many questions and 0 answers.  Pie in the sky!

Gonna look weird with an Eakin 4-story office building next door

But would have been an incredible location for Madame Tussauds

I like it minus the giant concrete parking structure.

If they're going to do a stand-alone garage, wrap it in neon / LEDs at the least.

Here is the Tennessean's take on the project.  It's working name is World One Hotel.  The developers want it to be a five-star brand, and price tag could be in the $500+ million range for the entire concept:

I realize the drawings are conceptual, but from the waist down (?) the design has a strong flavor of suburban office park.  The rounded corners, the grass strips between building and sidewalk, the lack of sidewalk activation - some of the images are exactly what I would envision for the proposed BNA airport hotel and parking expansion.
