At Enwave

LondonHouse Chicago Intrigues, Inside and Out

With a scheduled 2016 opening, LondonHouse Chicago – an Enwave Chicago customer – will soon be the newest addition to Chicago’s hotel scene. The new, one-of-a-kind venue melds the city’s past with its future, combining a 1920s-era historic landmark with a modernist 22-story, all-glass tower featuring unrivaled views of the city, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan.

The project kicked off in 2013 with the purchase of the London Guarantee and Accident building by an Oxford Capital Group LLC led venture with Angelo, Gordon & Co. It is being developed by Oxford Capital Group LLC a Chicago-based national real estate investment, development and management firm.

The Beaux Arts-style landmark opened in 1923 and has been home to major corporations, Paul Harvey’s radio studio and a famous jazz supper club over the years. It now houses amenities that provide a luxury lifestyle for guests from around the world as part of Curio – A Collection by Hilton.

LondonHouse’s 452 rooms and suites are complemented with 25,000 sq ft of meeting and event space, two floors of upscale retail space and Chicago's only tri-level rooftop bar, restaurant and lounge with some of the most exclusive outdoor dining in the city. The prime rooftop space was made possible in part by the building’s use of Enwave Chicago’s district cooling. Since the building doesn’t use chillers, it doesn’t need cooling towers cluttering its roof.
