CHICAGO — A joint venture between Chicago-based real estate developer Hubbard Street Group and athletic club owner and operator College Park Athletic Clubs is building Pickle Haus, a pickleball-themed sports and entertainment complex in the Algonquin suburb of Chicago . The project will breathe new life into vacant retail properties. Pickleball has been the fastest-growing sport in the U.S. in each of the past three years, according to the developer.
The 41,000-square-foot project is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in November. The Pickle Haus will feature 12 indoor pickleball courts, three golf simulators, a bar and event space, and an outdoor patio. Sheamus Feeley of Family Is Food designed the restaurant and bar sections, including bespoke menus.
The Hubbard Street Group has owned the vacant building since 2018. It was originally developed in 2008 for Dania Furniture. Before the pandemic, the building was leased to a national fitness center chain. However, the chain filed for bankruptcy and never moved into the building.
The project team also included Harken Interior Design, Hirsch MPG, William A. Randolph Construction, Greenberg Traurig, and Phlox Partners.
