The Soho House is set to open a new warehouse in the Arts District next month.

The members only club will open in a 80,000-square-foot converted warehouse at 1000 S. Santa Fe Avenue, according to Curbed. The building also has 48 rooms that members can rent for $190 or more per night. The annual charge for is $2,160 per year, according to the report.

Plans for the warehouse have been in the works since 2017. The seven-story building was dates from 1916. It features a restaurant, a gym, event space, a pool, lounging space, and an eatery and bar. It previously was rehearsal space for musicians.

The Soho House chain purchased the property in 2017 for $30 million, records show. The conversion project was designed by Killefer Flammang Architects.

Soho House operates a number of private clubs around the world, including South Beach House in Miami Beach, along with West Hollywood and Malibu.

The company is also expanding in other ways. In Brooklyn, it is opening a co-working venture in a office redevelopment. This week, Glacier Global Partners and Triangle Assets took out a $205 million refinancing on the building.

The Arts District itself has been a recent draw, with massive new office conversions, breweries and other developments. Access Industries and Warner Music Group paid $195 million for the recently-renovated Ford Factory building earlier this year, and Continuum Partners is working on a 107,000-square-foot office and retail complex nearby at 640 S. Santa Fe Avenue. [Curbed]Gregory Cornfield
