Chicago—Yet another hotel is scheduled to spring up in the Windy City next year. Nobu Hospitality, together with business partners Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Hollywood actor Robert De Niro, producer Meir Teper and Austrialian tycoon James Parker, has announced the official groundbreaking of the Nobu Hotel Chicago. The event was also attended by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Alderman Walter Burnett Jr., who showed their support for the new project.

The Nobu Hotel Chicago is scheduled for opening in late 2017 at 854 W. Randolph St., in the West Loop. The hotel will feature: 103 guestrooms and suites; a 10,000-square-foot signature Nobu restaurant opening on to Restaurant Row; a 3,000-square-foot suite available for meetings and events; a state-of-the-art fitness center; spa treatment rooms; and a rooftop indoor and outdoor bar and lounge.

“We are extremely pleased to begin development of the Nobu Hotel Chicago as the West Loop neighborhood is not only a culinary epicenter for renowned restaurants and chefs but also a highly desired destination for national and international travelers seeking world-class, enriching experiences,” Trevor Horwell, chief executive of Nobu Hospitality, said in a prepared statement.

Local interior design firm Studio K, alongside Modif Architecture will attempt to incorporate Japanese aesthetics into the stylish new hotel.
