Home2 Suites / Chicago, IL
Can you build a hotel using sustainable products?
Home2 Suites, a 17-story, 206-key hotel was a Chicago real estate development project located in River North. Mortenson teamed with the lead developer and owner, Akara Partners, on the extended-stay hotel, one of the few Home2 Suites urban high-rise hotels, while also serving as the design-builder with Norr Architects.
Mortenson built the flagship hotel at 110 West Huron Street in just 14 months on the site of a former parking lot. Unlike the smaller, three-story Home2 Suites suburban locations, the 120,000 square foot hotel features a modern glass enclosure system and a jump lobby configuration to maximize space for 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
Key Project Tools:
- Virtual Reality: The use of virtual reality, along with a full-scale model room, provided a streamlined final layout
- Lean Construction: 5S, Pull Planning and Last Planner System
- Green Features: A green roof using sustainable materials and sorting, recycling and tracking of nearly 90% of construction waste
