The website Urban Milwaukee is reporting that the Kimpton Hotel is an under construction 158-bedroom hotel on the corner of E. Chicago St. and N. Broadway in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. The hotel will include a ground-floor restaurant and a rooftop bar.
The hotel broke ground in December of 2014. The project is expected to open in 2016.
The project architect is Kahler Slater, with the hotel being developed by HKS Holdings, LLC. The site is owned by Chicago Street Holdings, LLC.
The site was previously a surface parking lot. It was previously owned by Milwaukee developer Peter Renner, who sold the land in 2012 to Jackson Street Management (developers of the Milwaukee St. Marriott Hotel and owners of the Aloft Hotel). Jackson Street Management sold the land for this project.
The project will be Kimpton’s first in the Milwaukee market. They were previously slated to enter the market with the cancelled Palomar Hotel.
