On the Wilhelminapier in Rotterdam, a hotel with apartments is being realised on the plot named ‘CHICAGO’, located between the landmark Hotel New York and Las Palmas. This project is commissioned by WestCord Hotels and cleverly combines hotel and residential facilities.
Hotel Chicago consists of a main hotel volume of five floors, with a smaller volume of three floors built on the roof containing residential penthouses.
The five hotel floors will provide a total of 120 hotel rooms on the first, second and third floors. There will be 15 two-room apartments and 3 three-room apartments on the fourth floor. On the fifth floor, 18 long-stay apartments are planned.
The ground floor lobby will feature a three-storey high atrium on the South-East façade, which will be publicly accessible. Urban planners are working with the flow of pedestrian traffic in the surrounding area to optimise the public experience.
