Continuing its expansion, PFNY, the New York-based franchisee of Planet Fitness, leased new outposts at Ashkenazy Acquisition-owned sites in Washington Heights and Brooklyn’s Bensonhurst neighborhood.

The three-story gym at 4168 Broadway in Manhattan will have 28,000 square feet, including 2,000 square feet on the ground floor and 13,000 square feet apiece on each of two upper floors. The Brooklyn location, at 2007 86th Street, will be slightly smaller – with a 14,000-square-feet ground-floor space and a 4,000-square-foot mezzanine.

Crown Retail Services brokers Richard Chera and Jordan Barker represented the tenant in both deals, according to the New York Post.

Last month, PFNY signed on to take 21,900 square feet at 213 West 34th Street. In June, PFNY took a 29,500-square-foot space at 423 West 55th Street in Midtown West and a 28,576-square-foot gym at 25 Broadway. And in August, it inked a deal for 15,700 square feet at Magna Hospitality Group’s Sheraton Hotel in Tribeca at 370 Canal Street, as The Real Deal reported. [NYP, 3rd item]Mark Maurer
