Royal Properties Breaks Ground in Chicago

505 North State Street project is a planned development in the River North Neighborhood of Chicago and will consist of a 35-story building containing 3 levels of parking (levels 2, 3, 4), an approximate 250+ guest-room hotel and 140 condominium units. The ground floor will accommodate hotel and condominium lobbies, registration service areas and a specialty restaurant. Hotel administration, function spaces and support services will be on level five, with the 16th floor designed to house Hotel and Condominium amenity spaces, shared fitness center and pool. The 16th floor will also feature exterior landscaped roof deck accommodation.

 The site is a corner parcel fronting State Street to the west and Illinois Street to the south and is bounded by the existing AMA office building and plaza to the north and east. The project scope will also include new paving and landscape work along the State and Illinois Street frontages. A new vehicular drop off is planned along the State Street façade.

Construction began in October 2007 and is expected to be complete by November 2009.
