FitzGerald Associates Architects and F&F Realty want to bring yet another hotel to Fulton Market.

The Chicago-based architectural firm and Skokie-based developer are teaming up for a 20-story, 200-key hotel project with ground-floor retail at 920 West Lake Street, according to Crain’s.

Hundreds of new hotel rooms are proposed in the neighborhood, joining the 159-key Ace hotel at 311 North Morgan Street, the 182-key Hoxton Hotel at 200 North Green Street and the Soho House hotel and private club at 113 North Green Street.

Before this new hotel project, in 2015, FitzGerald had proposed an 81-unit apartment building on the site, which is next to its Lake Street Lofts apartment building. But Alderman Walter Burnett (27th) blocked the plan.

And it’s not the only fight Burnett’s brought to Fulton Market. The alderman recently told Sterling Bay he wants the firm to offer affordable retail rentals, much like what is already done in the housing market, at two office buildings it’s proposing in the district. The developer’s attorney said the request was under consideration.

A few blocks away from Fulton Market, FitzGerald and F&F previously teamed up, along with Fifield Companies, to build the oval-shaped apartment building just at 727 West Madison Street. [Crain’s]John O’Brien
