Hyatt at McCormick Place Launches Phase 1 of Expansion

Piggybacking on our story about the CTA Green Line stop our friends at Curbed Chicago had a post yesterday about the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place launching phase 1 of construction:
Per this morning's press release, the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place is kicking off construction of its second tower, a $110M 460-room expansion that brings Hyatt's room total to 1,260. The first of three phases of construction and renovation, the tower expects to open mid-2013. The other phases are slightly more modest, involving a cafe expansion (whoop-dee-do), a renovation of the 800-room building, and a makeover of the 25,000 sf in-house conference center.
Again, good news for the area.

More people = more business = better Motor Row entertainment district.

Anyway, we will have one more quick post this afternoon about the Cermak stretch.
