Kohler Waters Spa to open its fifth location in Chicago

by Jane Kitchen | 06 Aug 2018

Kohler Company has announced plans to expand its Kohler Waters Spa offering, with a second location in the Chicago area at Lincoln Common – a new crossroads development in Lincoln Park.

Covering six acres, the development will be located in one of the several restored and revitalised buildings in Lincoln Common, with a scheduled opening date of June 2019.

Kohler Waters Spa Lincoln Park will have 21 treatment rooms spread across two floors, as well as indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, a manicure and pedicure finishing salon, a hair salon, and a hydromassage pool in a thermal suite.

Water is the central theme in every Kohler Waters Spa, with special attention paid to hydrotherapy experiences. The spa will offer water experiences for all five senses and have a hydrotherapy circuit to include sauna, cool plunge pool and a steamroom.

The hydromassage pool features a water massage experience providing spa goers with a hydromassage journey. The massaging jets target the body at varying heights, starting with the calves, leading through the glutes and back, and concluding with a powerful gooseneck showerhead for the neck and shoulders.

The second floor of the spa will be home to 21 treatments rooms, plus two Kohler custom vichy showers. A digital showering system called the Kohler DTV controls water temperature, patterns and angles digitally so the therapist can focus on the guest.

The second floor will also include a co-ed lounge with an indoor relaxation space and outdoor patio seating, filled with landscaping aimed to help guests escape the bustle of urban surroundings.

Kohler Waters Spa Lincoln Park will have in its menu signature services for which the brand is known, as well as seasonal services unique to the Lincoln Park location.

With a palate of pastels and blues, the interior space will include products from Kohler brands such as Ann Sacks tile and Kohler plumbing products.

The flagship location of the Kohler Waters Spa at The American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin, is two hours north of Chicago. Kohler also operates another spa in Chicago, and opened Lodge Kohler in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Most recently, the company recently renovated its spa at The Old Course hotel in St Andrews, Scotland.

The Lincoln Common project is the redevelopment of the former Children’s Memorial Hospital site. Co-developed by McCaffery Interests and Hines, Lincoln Common will consist of two 20-story luxury apartment buildings with a total of 538 units, approximately 100,000sq ft (9,290sq m) of retail, a 5-story boutique loft office building and roughly 40 low-rise condominium residences.

Designed by Antunovich Associates in collaboration with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the project includes the adaptive reuse of several historic structures, including two terra cotta-façade buildings. The project will implement sustainable design and construction practices and will target LEED Silver designation.
