After more than three months away, East Bank Club members are returning to new and improved space. Shortly before Illinois’ shelter-in-place order took effect, James McHugh Construction Co. completed an 8,000-square-foot expansion at the East Bank Club at 500 N. Kingsbury St. in Chicago, adding a 70-bike cycling studio and a members-only coworking space on a newly constructed mezzanine level.
The $6.9-million, 14-month project also included transformation of existing space under the mezzanine into a new free weight room; updates to the club’s cardio room; and construction of a new floating staircase leading to the mezzanine.
“East Bank Club has been at the forefront of Chicago’s fitness scene since it opened, so it’s no surprise this project has tapped into one of the biggest trends within the fitness industry – the expansion of studios within a club model to give members that boutique experience,” said Michael Meagher, president of Chicago-based McHugh.
