Barry’s took over Goldman Properties’ former headquarters at 2214 Northwest First Place, according to a news release. The space, owned by Goldman Properties, is 9,000 square feet.

Goldman Properties’s late founder Tony Goldman, was known for breathing life into some of the nation’s most iconic neighborhoods such as SoHo in New York City, Center City Philadelphia and Wynwood.

The company, whose board co-chair is Jessica Goldman Srebnick and CEO is Scott Srebnick, is moving its own headquarters to 310 Northwest 26th Street, just a block from Wynwood Walls, according to the release.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez said during a discussion with Barry’s CEO Joey Gonzalez last year that the fitness company’s decision to move to Miami is “a magnet” for the continued migration of tech and financial firms to the city, according to the release.

Suarez’s “How can I Help?” initiative on Twitter has been a push to make the city a mecca for these companies, with many opting to expand in Wynwood or relocate there.
