Billed as a “new lifestyle concept” coming to Philly, Fitler Club, at 2400 Market St., will open in the spring of 2019.

Tailored for Philadelphia’s growing community of business, creative and social leaders, the 75,000-sq. ft. space above the Schuylkill River is in crude form now, but promises to feature best-in-class social, hospitality, business and wellness offerings under one roof.

Among the club’s many amenities to be afforded to its guests are restaurants and bars, a high-end fitness center featuring a luxury spa, a 75-foot lap pool and multiple work-out studios, five-star hotel accommodations, co-working spaces and private office suites, over 10,000 sq. feet of flexible, state-of-the-art event space featuring a 4,600-sq. ft. ballroom, conference rooms, private dining, a high-end screening room, bowling lanes, billiards and more.

Put together by partners David Gutstadt, who has 20 years in the hospitality industry, Michael Forman of FS Investments and former NBA All-Star David Robinson, the Fitler Club is promising to bring more than 100 new jobs to the downtown area.
