Studio 6/Motel 6 Proposed for Old Historical Building in Motor Row (2300 S. Indiana)

Another hotel could be coming to Motor Row (via Crains):
Chicago convention-goers could soon have a lower-cost hotel option next to McCormick Place under a proposal that would add to the recent run of new places to stay in the Near South Side neighborhood.

A suburban investor plans to turn a vacant six-story former auto showroom just steps from the convention center into a 200-room, dual-brand Studio 6/Motel 6, according to a spokeswoman for Des Plaines-based Sachi Construction, the general contractor assigned to the project. The venture that owns the property at 2300 S. Indiana Ave. is controlled by a group that includes Arlington Heights-based investor Chirag Patel, according to public records.

Not surprisingly, the area is starting to get real traction in development.  Most notably was the new tri-Hilton hotel that opened last year and the Marriott Marquis that opened in 2017.  There is also a lot of smaller business sprouting up in the area. 

Anyway, looks like the momentum continues for Motor Row.
