Hotel Zachary is coming to Wrigleyville, right by the home of the Cubs, and you can bet it’s going to feel like home when you see the list of who’s involved in the project.

Hickory Street Capital, the real estate development company owned by the Ricketts family who also own the Cubs, recently revealed the plans for Hotel Zachary, due to open in early 2018 on the corner of Clark and Addison streets.

The seven-story, 238,000-square-foot building is not only set to be a beautiful place to rest your head, but will also include retail space for Chicago shops and local chef-driven restaurants. It will feature some of the city’s most popular hospitality groups, including One Off Hospitality (Big Star, the Publican), 4 Star Restaurant Group (The Smoke Daddy, Remington’s), Folkart Restaurant Management (Yusho, Billy Sunday) and West Town Bakery, so you can bet it’s going to be good. The hotel is named for famed Chicago architect Zachary Taylor Davis, who designed Wrigley Field in 1914.

“From inception, we felt it was important to partner with Chicago-based, chef-driven restaurant groups to curate a distinctly local experience unique to Wrigleyville,” said Eric Nordness, vice president of Hickory Street Capital, in a press release. “We feel fortunate to have partnered with passionate chef-driven restaurant operators who are at the forefront of Chicago’s culinary community.”

Oh, and the 175-room hotel will be a part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, so you can still earn those points for a night at the W on your next staycation.
