SoHo House to convert Chicago warehouse to brand

The Soho House Group should break ground this year on a redevelopment of a warehouse in Chicago to be transformed into a six-story 35-room hotel with three restaurants and a spa by two local companies, Shapack Development and AJ Capital Partners. The SoHo company was founded in 1995 in London, and the company has membership clubs at various locations around the world, including New York City, Miami and Berlin. Recently, the company announced it will open new properties in five cities, with Chicago (which should open by spring 2014) being the only U.S. location. The other club properties will open in Toronto (in fall 2012), Mumbai (spring 2013), Istanbul (spring 2014) and Barcelona (winter 2014).
