Just a few blocks from The Michigan Avenue Magnificent Mile and The Loop, Moxy Chicago intermingles with Chicago’s trendy bar and restaurant scene. The property is located in the vibrant River North neighborhood to target the curious and adventurous traveler. Like its guests, the Moxy brand sets itself as independent but connected, smart but not superior, and collaborative but convivial.
Sitting on a prominent corner in Chicago’s gallery district, the design incorporates a 6-story fine art installation integrated into the façade. This feature, intended to engage local artists, serves as an overt connection to the neighborhood. The balance of the façade is purposefully reserved and elegant, honoring Chicago’s Miesian design heritage. The highly efficient U-shaped guestroom plan features an internal light well, and the design optimizes its location with corner windows affording views of Chicago’ skyline. The building’s mass holds the street wall and engages the passers-by with massive vertical folding glass doors and active uses that enhance the pedestrian experience.
