Essex Crossing, Site 5
Which way to the gym?
Planet Fitness just announced plans yesterday to open a new facility in Essex Crossing. The national gym chain – which boasts some 1,000 locations around the country – inked a deal to acquire 22,000 square-feet at Site 5. It’ll reside on the second floor of the fifteen-story mixed-use tower upon its completion in 2018 (or thereabouts).
The new construction will also boast 211 units (half affordable), a school facility, and park on the Broome Street front.
“To be a part of a such an impressive project in such an important community is an unbelievable opportunity for Planet Fitness,” said Jeff Innocenti, CEO of Planet Fitness New York LLC, a franchisee of the New Hampshire-based chain, told DNAinfo.
Planet Fitness is the third large-scale business to announce plans for Essex Crossing. As previously reported, Regal Cinema is opening a fourteen-screen multiplex at Site 2 and Splitsville Lanes will take the basement of Site 1.
Lest we forget that the Andy Warhol Museum uncharacteristically ditched its New York outpost for reasons unknown.
