Changing the Face of Wrigleyville
It’s wonderful to see how a few interesting new projects are now changing the face of Wrigleyville (and baseball itself!) as a new generation will see it. Sound Structures, Inc. has had the opportunity to design several new buildings in Wrigleyville, including the new Hotel Zachary.
The hotel, named after the original Wrigley Field architect Zachary Taylor Davis, is a result of exemplary teamwork between Stantec Architects and Sound Structures to bring to realization the Ricketts family vision for Wrigleyville.
With expected street level tenants such as McDonalds, Smoke Daddy, Big Star, and West Town, the Hotel Zachary is sure to be a home run for visitors and fans alike.
