Chicago Convention Center


Project Description

NOTE: This Regional Center has been terminated and the Project has been closed by the Law Enforcement. The EB-5 promoter of the project has been indicted on charges of fraud and making false statements.

SEC and USCIS have coordinated to stop the activities of Anshoo Sethi and the EB-5 designated Intercontinental Regional Center Trust of Chicago (IRCTC) from continuing to misappropriate funds from overseas immigrant investors in connection with the "A Chicago Convention Center LLC" offering that he and Chinese migration agents were heavily promoting to investors. For more information and details on the investment and subsequent law enforcement actions please view the stories in the Project Updates section here.

[The proposed project, to be known as the Chicago Convention Center, will be the first Zero Carbon Platinum LEED accredited and 100% allergen-free convention center complex in the world. All guest rooms will be improved with state-of-the-art technology.

The center will include five upper/up-scale hotel brands in three towers. The first tower is a 17-story Starwood Element, which will contain 321 guest suites plus 15 conference suites for a total of 336 rooms. The second tower is comprised of a 19-story, 209-room IHG Hotel Indigo and 154-suite Staybridge Suites. The 14-story third tower will contain a Hyatt Place with 148 rooms and a Hyatt Summerfield Suites with 148 rooms.

The property will include four floors of convention space with a total of 290,000 square feet, all of which will be connected across the lower levels of all three towers. A total of 55,000 square feet will be allocated for restaurants, lounges, and bars throughout the complex. A 1,720-space automatic robotic parking structure will lie below the convention center/hotel complex aligned beneath the second tower. The development will also feature the largest guest accessible hotel green-roof complex in the country, containing almost an acre allocated for a spa, a yoga studio, a bar/lounge area, and a miniature golf course. A total of 995 rooms are proposed, of which 786 will be suites.]
