Rock climbers bag 46,000 s/f Williamsburg location

West coast rock climbing operation VITAL Climbing Gym, has inked a 46,000 s/f retail lease at 1 Nassau Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

VITAL will occupy the entire space at 1 Nassau Avenue, which will serve as the company’s fifth location.
It will be the largest climbing gym in New York City when it opens in the summer of 2019.

CBRE’s Michael Kadosh, Lon Rubackin, and Jesse Wolff represented VITAL in the transaction, while the landlord, 1 Nassau Owner LLC., was represented by Keat Chew and Harrison Balisky, who were brokers of EXR at the time of the transaction.

“We’re excited to become part of the New York climbing community. People come to VITAL to challenge and open themselves up to a world of new experiences,” said David Sacher, co-founder of VITAL.

“Our gyms buzz with life and excitement. Evenings are packed with young adults building relationships, kids on our climbing teams discover what it’s like to leave the ground, while our oldest members stay strong against the ever-increasing pull of gravity. We design our spaces to reflect this energy – clean, open, bright, full of conversation, creativity, and life.”

CBRE’S Kadosh added, “Climbing gyms are now massively popular hubs for millennials. VITAL is a unique concept in fitness, open 24 hours a day for members, and will also offer full health club amenities including fitness equipment, yoga, spin, and aerial silks classes. VITAL will undoubtedly be a meaningful addition to the neighborhood.”
