The Roosevelt Hotel
Client Frankel & Giles Location
Chicago, Illinois
An existing 8-story plus basement masonry and wood hotel structure was renovated for student housing use after sitting vacant for eight years. Extensive repair of the facade was needed to address deterioration. The reinforcement of the structure was in need of special attention as a result of internal structural changes made in the 1920’s when Roosevelt Road was raised to overpass State Street. Restoration of Roosevelt Road to grade level in 1990 allowed the recreation of the missing ornate limestone and glass storefront above which are rental dwellings overlooking Dearborn Park and the lakefront.
