The Viceroy Chicago was built by local architecture firm Goettsch Partners -- created on top of the classic four-storey Cedar hotel built in the 1920s.

The new 18-storey structure features a unique wave-like glass facade, spanning 150,000 square feet with a completely different visual identity from the existing structure. The architects decided to preserve the original structure with a rectangular form and red brick terracotta details. The new 'folding' geometry of the upper exterior was inspired by the argyle pattern found in the brick facade below. The design team added a rooftop terrace, topped with a pool and cocktail lounge.

With 180 guest rooms, an event space and a ballroom, the Viceroy Chicago hotel is the latest luxury addition to the cities skyline.
