Opening this month, Bucktown’s newly expanded Midtown Athletic Club is a six-floor fitness extravaganza, featuring a tennis lounge designed by Venus Williams’s V Starr Interiors, a Bloody Mary trolley, and a ritzy 55-room hotel (though you’ll have to wait until October to check in). So what else goes into a “sports resort”?
Dollars spent on the upgrade
Chairs and loungers on the rooftop pool deck
Tons of free weights in the gyms
Years it would take the average household to use all the water in the pools
Zamboni to groom the rooftop ice rink in the winter
Chance you will see Venus Williams lolling on the deck
