The city’s East Side could gain a transformative, 11-story hotel under a proposal from developers Michael Klein and Jeno Cataldo.

The hotel would rise on a triangular lot located at the intersection of E. Brady St., N. Farwell Ave. and N. Cambridge Ave. It would include a first-floor restaurant and bar, and a rooftop event space…

The Lower East Side hotel would be the only one on the entire East Side, with the nearest competing operation located approximately a mile south. Beyond the walkable neighborhood, a number of nearby amenities could generate business for the hotel including numerous event venues, Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital and lakefront and street festivals…

Klein and Cataldo are no strangers to the neighborhood. Klein Development previously developed The Easton, a 96-unit apartment building just south of E. Brady St. on the 1600 block of N. Franklin Pl. It was sold in 2021. Klein also developed a 55-unit complex, The East Sider, at 2900 N. Oakland Ave. Cataldo was an investor in both projects. The Cataldo family is a Brady Street mainstay, owning Jo-Cat’s Pub and several other properties. Jeno also owns and operates Saint Bibiana and Dorsia, both bar-restaurant establishments, on Brady Street.
