Equinox Holdings — the purveyor of upscale gyms — is planning to open a hotel at Related Companies’ Hudson Yards development.

The hotel will be geared toward health-conscious travelers, the Wall Street Journal reported. The hotel, which will feature high-end fitness amenities, is scheduled to open in 2018. Yabu Pushelberg will design the property, which will feature a 60,000-square-foot Equinox gym.

Equinox, which is owned by Related, is opening a hotel in Los Angeles in 2019 and hopes to eventually open roughly 75 hotels around the world, the newspaper reported.

“We are appealing to the discriminating consumer who lives an active lifestyle and wants to have that as a hotel experience,” Harvey Spevak, chief executive of Equinox, told the newspaper. [WSJ] — Claire Moses
