Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has announced a new retail lease for Real Life Ninja Academy on behalf of landlord Nationwide Management Corp.
The 5,814 s/f space at 625 West 55th Street marks the Academy’s first location in Manhattan. NKF’s Managing Director Andrew Stern and Director Ravi Idnani represented the landlord while Malorie Currier, Principal Partner of Page1Properties, represented the tenant.
Real Life Ninja Academy will be the first ninja warrior obstacle training facility in Manhattan. Athletes of all ages and skill levels will learn how to analyze, approach, and conquer challenging obstacles at this state-of-the-art training facility. The Academy is planning a grand opening this fall.
“We think once the city re-opens, people will be looking for new activities and Real Life Ninja Academy could be the perfect outlet,” said Stern. “The location is ideal because of its high ceilings, spacious layout and easy access.”
The Academy will feature obstacles that reflect those seen by millions on television. Real Life Ninja Academy is expected to attract children and adults from both New York City and the surrounding area. Ninja coaches and trainers will teach beginner and intermediate small group classes, as well as provide advanced one-on-one sessions to prepare athletes interested in competition.
Real Life Ninja Academy’s notable neighbors include Planet Fitness, Central Rock, Club Pilates, American Kennel Club, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Hudson Market, Landmark Theaters, Terminal 5 and John Jay College.
Charles S. Rich, and Lawrence Rose Esqs. of Rottenberg Lipman Rich, P.C. worked on behalf of ownership to secure the transaction.
