Studio Three, a boutique gym with a cult-like following in River North, plans to launch its largest location in Lincoln Park. As a self-proclaimed “mecca of fitness” the high-end studio offers classes in interval training, cycling and yoga.
The new 16,000-square-foot space at 2401 N. Halsted Street is expected to open later this year. The $6 million, two-story luxury studio, designed by bKL Architecture, will take up residence in a building that previously housed an art gallery.
Studio Three has chosen a bustling area for its second location—just next door a massive 1.1-million-square-foot development known as Lincoln Commons. The project will turn the former Children’s Memorial Hospital site into hundreds of apartments, office and retail space. DePaul University’s campus and well-known shopping streets are just a few minutes away too.
Studio Three’s renovation includes opening up an atrium in the building that will allow a massive skylight to send through tons of natural light. Differing from the River North location’s dark floors and brick walls, the Lincoln Park location will feature white washed pine walls and sleek, white corian countertops.
The huge space will include three studios that can hold between 50 to 70 sweaty people per class. Similar to the River North location, the locker rooms and bathrooms will have a 35-foot beauty bar, full-service locker rooms, complimentary cycle shoes, yoga mats and towels. And the GRAZE Smoothie and Acai Bar will open on the first floor.
Rates and hours will generally be the same and members will be able to access both studios. The Lincoln Park location will have a childcare option for parents while they take a class.
