Winick Realty Group announced a 15,500 s/f lease for Blink Fitness at the base of Chelsea Park, a new residential building located at 260 West 26th Street.
Alexander Hill of Winick Realty Group represented ownership, and Blink Fitness was represented by Peter Levine of Charter Realty & Development.
Blink will have a ground-floor entrance at 308 Eighth Avenue, on the southeast corner of 26th Street, which will lead down to a lower-level gym that focuses on brand-name cardio and strength training equipment, free weights and a dedicated functional training area.
“This area of Eighth Avenue is ideal for retailers because of its strong residential population, the proximity to FIT, and the growing popularity of Chelsea,” said Hill. “Blink will be an amenity to the building, and a phenomenal co-tenant for the ground floor retail.”
Hill is currently marketing 15,511 s/f of ground-floor space at Chelsea Park for another retailer to join Blink Fitness.
The remaining available retail space features over 200 feet of frontage and 14-foot ceilings. Logical divisions will be considered and the space can be vented for a restaurant or gourmet supermarket.
The 12-story Chelsea Park, located on the corner of Eighth Avenue and West 26th Street, consists of 204 luxury rental apartments ranging from studios to two-bedroom units.
