High Ridge Office Park in Stamford may not be getting a Life Time Fitness center. The city’s board of representatives unanimously voted to reverse a zoning board decision that would have allowed large-scale fitness centers to be built in Stamford’s office parks, the Stamford Advocate reported. High Ridge Office Park owner George Comfort & Sons had hoped to build a 100,000-square-foot facility at the site, but many of the city’s residents were opposed to the plan, arguing that it would draw more traffic and noise to the area. George Comfort & Sons now plans to “review [its] legal options as [it] continues to seek viable solutions to a very real economic concern for all Stamford residents and taxpayers,” company spokesperson Geoff Thompson told the outlet. [Stamford Advocate]
