Wrigley Field’s many renovations have been well documented over the past few years, but the historic ballpark isn’t the only thing undergoing an evolution of sorts. The area surrounding the Friendly Confines has also been experiencing a hefty amount of construction recently, as well.

New restaurants, bars, and a family-friendly park have been slowly creeping and expanding like ivy over brick throughout the Wrigleyville area. One of the newest additions now open for business is Hotel Zachary, a 173-room hotel nestled into a tight site directly adjacent to Wrigley Field.

The design of the 238,000-sf hotel pays homage to the eponymous Zachary Taylor Davis, the architect who designed Wrigley Field in 1914. Hickory Street Capital, owner of Hotel Zachary, and Stantec Architecture and Studio K Creative, designers of Hotel Zachary, worked closely with the Davis family to ensure his legacy was properly conveyed in the new hotel.

In addition to the guestrooms, Hotel Zachary will also feature various Chicago-based retail and restaurant offerings. The retail offerings will inhabit the storefronts to create a strong street presence. The glass exterior of the building is complemented by wood paneling and comfortable interiors.

Walsh Construction built the project, which was delivered ahead of schedule in March 2018.
