CHICAGO, ILLINOIS PROPERTY EST. 1929 With its unique architecture and cultural diversity, the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile was destined to be a success. Built in 1929 as the Medinah Athletic Club, the club was later forced to close in 1934 due to the stock market crash. InterContinental Hotels bought the property in 1988, and after a quarter of a billion dollars in original restoration work and 12 years later, this truly magnificent InterContinental Chicago hotel was reintroduced to Chicago as a harmonious merging of Old World elegance and 21st-century craftsmanship. The InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile stands proudly as one of the city’s landmark architectural treasures. An engineering feat when the above-ground pool was built in 1929, the pool has since had many famous visitors, including Olympic gold medalist Johnny Weissmuller.
