Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is teaming up with a local developer to redevelop the site of its Fulton Market headquarters into the neighborhood’s newest office and hotel projects.

Principals of Hartshorne Plunkard and Base Capital Group submitted a zoning application Wednesday for a 12-story hotel and six-story office building at 1033-57 West Fulton Market, between Carpenter and Aberdeen streets. Both buildings would have retail on the ground floor.

Hartshorne Plunkard is based out of the single-story brick office building it owns at 232 North Carpenter Street on the site of the proposed development.

The entire development would comprise a 135,700 square foot hotel, 46,400 square feet of offices and 21,900 square feet of retail, according to the application.

The new buildings would rise right behind the 12-story office building Sterling Bay completed this year at 210 North Carpenter Street, joining a growing cluster of mid-rise office and hotel projects being planned in the orbit of the Morgan CTA station and adjacent Google offices at 1K Fulton.

Shapack Partners and Focus Development have begun foundation work on a 17-story office building at 167 North Green Street, Murphy Development is preparing to build a smaller office building at 318 North Carpenter Street, Thor Equities plans an 18-story office building at 800 West Fulton Street and Tishman Speyer joined a bid by Mark Goodman & Associates to build about 225,000 square feet of offices at 310 North Sangamon Street.

The new hotel planned by Hartshorne Plunkard and Base Capital Group would compete with Sterling Bay’s 159-key Ace Hotel, Shapack’s newly-opened Hoxton Hotel and a 13-story project proposed at 1234 West Randolph Street by DDG and Marc Realty Capital.

Hartshorne Plunkard is the design firm behind dozens of high-profile Chicago developments, including 1K Fulton and JDL Development’s No. 9 Walton condo tower.

A representative of Base Capital Group declined comment on the plans Thursday, and Hartshorne Plunkard did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
