Downtown Jamaica in Queens is now officially a destination for gym rats: Planet Fitness has inked a lease in a new 36,000-square-foot retail center, making it the fourth health club in the neighborhood.
Planet Fitness will set up shop at 168-50 Jamaica Avenue, not far from Bally Total Fitness, Lucille Roberts and Blink Fitness. The strip mall is slated to open in about nine months, according DNAinfo, which did not report the square footage of the deal. Metropolitan Skyline is marketing the project for developer ACHS Management.
Metropolitan Skyline is in talks with several prospective tenants for the center, which still has about 12,000 square feet available. Several chain stores such as Marshalls have moved into the area in the last year or so. [DNAinfo] – Hiten Samtani
