Fulton Market Nobu Hotel Inches Closer To Reality
The Commission's stamp may be seen merely as a formality, since the official groundbreaking was held in June, with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the development's celebrity investor, Robert De Niro, in attendance, according to Chicago Architecture Blog.

The project at the corner of Randolph and Peoria streets originally called for 12 stories, 119 hotel rooms and 35 parking spaces. After presenting it to community groups, it was revised last year to seven stories, 93 rooms, a 10k SF restaurant and a penthouse. [CAB]
