Out ChicagoLooks like it’s a go for the second Out hotel, this one in Chicago. Go pride reports:

Plans for The OUT Chicago, a new “straight-friendly” boutique hotel proposed for the 3300 block of Halsted in Boystown, are moving forward after the Northalsted Business Alliance voted in favor of the project Thurs., July 11. The decision is a victory for Ian Reisner of Parkview Developers, founder of the The Out NYC, who has been trying to address neighborhood concerns since he first proposed the project in April. “The North Halsted Business Alliance voted in favor of The Out Chicago hotel project after reviewing their modified hotel plans that addressed many of the neighborhood and community issues,” Reisner told “Mainly [by] reducing the height of the building and shifting the massing of hotel to the corner of Buckingham and Halsted, with an iconic cantilever design that should be an architectural attraction for Lakeview.”

Love the blend of old and new. Wonder when they plan to open?
