Looks like the plan is (was) 3700 sqft, near B1, with windows facing northeast across the tarmac between B and C.

I don't know if the plan has changed due to covid.

This thread has surely gone way off track. From PP Lounge at MDW to getting to/from MDW and now LAX?

Anyways, last post had a layout - any news of WHEN this might open?

All of the progress updates here stopped in August, before which they all said that construction work on concessions had been halted, so I assume it's not coming any time soon.

Any updates on whether this lounge opened and if Priority Pass users have access?

It is not open.

Based on additional info I got from CDA, it almost certainly will be Priority Pass whenever it does finally open.

Hopefully it opens. I'd rather fly MDW than ORD and Delta services both airports non-stop for me. But I chose ORD to fly out of in case of IROP's since there is a skyclub during a long delay

Was flying out of B1 Sunday and saw zero evidence of a lounge opening soon. In fact most restaurants and bars at MDW are still closed down, so I assume it will be awhile yet before they continue any work on a lounge there.

And as the skies fill again, wonder whether I can put my name on the waitlist before a 2023 flight from Midway!

Has anyone heard anything about this or is it permanently dead?

Answer is a big fat nope. I'd say it's dead pending an official update from the city...

Update:

"I can confirm that the lounge is still in the plan, is currently under development, and Airport Dimensions, previously known as ALD, is still the operator for this space. We are excited to bring this new passenger choice to MDW for the first time!

The redevelopment program schedule has been revised as a result of the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. This also required changes to the phasing of when spaces are developed so that passengers are not inconvenienced by the redevelopment."

Flying out of MDW the other day I saw the area around the white sox grill and the surrounding shops was walled off. Maybe there is some movement on this?
