The company that brought the city Chelsea Piers is planning to open a fitness club on the border of Downtown Brooklyn and Boerum Hill, where it’s signed a lease for 52,000 square feet at TF Cornerstone’s 33 Bond Street.
The new location is set to open next year and the Chelsea Piers company said it will be a “world class fitness club,” the Wall Street Journal reported. Asking rents for the ground-floor space in the area are about $100 per square foot.
TF Cornerstone senior vice president Jake Elghanayan said the company had been looking for a unique gym or similar tenant for the building that would stand out from the crowd.
“The focus on fitness has grown and expanded,” he said. “There wasn’t a gym of this scale that serves the community.”
Residents at the 714-unit rental tower will be eligible for free or deeply discounted membership at the gym, said Elghanayan, who added the company is looking to bring in a food provider at the building.
