Construction equipment and fencing for the new Downtown Skokie Homewood Suites by Hilton are now in place at 4930 Oakton Street. Interior demolition work is underway, and exterior demolition expected to begin in mid-July, with construction of the new hotel to follow.
The 143-room hotel is expected to bring an estimated 47,000 guests annually who, along with their families, friends and colleagues, will shop, dine, consume services and generate additional sales taxes for the Village. During construction, hundreds of construction workers and related professionals will work on the project. When completed, the hotel, restaurants and event spaces are anticipated to generate 125 full-time jobs in Downtown Skokie. The hotel is slated to open in late 2023.
