Archicritics: Chicago Athletic Association

The restoration and hotel conversion of the old Chicago Athletic Association building is really cooking with a targeted opening in fall 2014. Archicritic Lynn Becker revisits the story of Henry Ives Cobb's 1893 Venetian-Gothic landmark. AJ Capital Partners is leading the charge toward a four-story, 240-room hotel involving the replenishment of original architectural details and the wealthy private club-caliber amenities that waned over the years. Go ahead, take Becker's walk-through. [ArchitectureChicago PLUS, previously]
