A word from El Cap CEO, Robert Cohen:
“We think that people in Chicago, who love adventure and fitness, want a place where they can come together and share their passion for climbing,” said Robert Cohen, CEO at El Cap. “We are delighted to have a chance to open two facilities in Chicago and become a part of these iconic and vibrant neighborhoods.”
About the location:
The Wrigleyville location, located at 1111 West Addison Street, Chicago, IL 60613, will have convenient access to the red and brown lines and discounted parking on non-game days in an adjacent lot. “Our Wrigleyville facility will be an incredible experience – much more than a climbing gym,” said Micky Lloyd, head of expansion for El Cap. “The facility will be on three floors wrapped around a central atrium that reaches up 50 feet to skylights on the top of the building. Our weights and cardio equipment will be on a separate floor and will overlook the climbing – the most fun view you can get while working out.”
We love progress! Check out our latest pics.
Exterior framing is nearing completion and we’re starting on masonry and roofing. The last picture may look like a boring concrete slab, but it is where all the magic will start – it is where all of our holds will be washed.
