How about a high-end fitness center for the Bowery? And why not, all the new deep-pocketed residents (i.e. 250 Bowery) need to sweat it out in style.
Apparently, the ModelFIT program inked a seven-year lease for 1,500 square-feet on the second floor of 212 Bowery. According to Crain’s, the company that beckons you to “train like an angel” spent $80 per square-foot. The sprawling space also includes an outdoor patio, and will allegedly open five months from now.
The “photography studio” mentioned in the article is presumably the (now former) studio loft of famed photographer Terry Richardson.
So it’s sorta fitting that a program catering to supermodels would operate here at 212 Bowery.
“It’s not like the Bowery of ten years ago,” Task Real Estate broker Adam Stupak told Crain’s.
The neighborhood is rapidly developing as the place to be for hotels, retail stores and restaurants, said Adam Stupak, who represented ModelFIT along with fellow Task Real Estate broker Jason Sandlofer. “The whole area is hot—everything is happening there,” Mr. Stupak said. “It’s not like the Bowery of 10 years ago.”
ModelFIT currently holds court crosstown at the Tribeca Health & Fitness center.
