McHugh sues city over site of proposed McCormick Place hotel
By: Ryan Ori September 16, 2013

James McHugh Construction Co. is suing the city of Chicago over a South Loop parcel that the Emanuel administration has targeted for a 1,200-room Marriott Marquis hotel that would complement the proposed DePaul University basketball arena.
The Chicago–based contractor has had plans of its own for the site: a six-story, 314,000-square-foot data center at 121 E. Cermak Road, about two blocks west of McCormick Place. McHugh's plans have been stuck in limbo since last fall, when city officials told the company it intended to acquire the parcel, according to the complaint filed today in Cook County Circuit Court.

-Combine the projects, make the tower taller and give McHugh the bid to build the structure. Problem solved.
