Developer reduces height, changes design of Judge Doyle Square hotel
The developer behind the centerpiece hotel for the $175 million Judge Doyle Square project Downtown is now offering a shorter, less-flashy design for the property one block from the state Capitol.
Beitler Real Estate Services, of Chicago, which initially proposed a shimmering, 12-story glass-sheathed building to rise on the 200 block of South Pinckney Street, says it now intends to build a nine-story structure that retains its curved shape facing the street but abandons the dominant glass appearance for a mix of metal panels and glass and some masonry at the base.
Despite the reduced height, the hotel will still have roughly 260 rooms and other amenities including a first-floor lobby with bar, restaurant and meeting spaces.
