Simone Development Companies announced that CKO Kickboxing has signed a new 10-year lease at the Throggs Neck Shopping Center.
The shopping center is located at 815 Hutchinson River Parkway in the Ferry Point section of the Bronx.
The affordable fitness kickboxing studio is open for business.
The Throggs Neck Shopping Center is one of the Bronx’s most successful large-scale retail developments.
Located at the intersection of Lafayette Avenue and the Hutchinson River Parkway, the 30,000 s/f center is anchored by one of the best-selling Target stores in the nation and is home to 27 retailers and restaurants.
Simone Development Companies was represented in-house by Joanna Simone, vice president of leasing and property management operations.
CKO Kickboxing was represented by Karnit Moshery and Janine Kemm from Royal Properties.
CKO Kickboxing joins a number of well-known retailers and restaurants, including Target, TJ Maxx, Mattress Firm, Petco, Sketchers, Metro Optics, Party City, Applebee’s, Five Guys Burgers & Fries and Sarku Japan.
“We are thrilled to welcome CKO Kickboxing to their first location in the Bronx,” said Joanna Simone.
“This fantastic retail center is a perfect example of Simone Development Companies’ commitment towards contributing to the transformation and revitalization of the Bronx, in this case through the re-purposing of a vacant and under-utilized commercial property to what it is today. We are confident CKO Kickboxing will seamlessly fit in with our terrific roster of tenants in serving the local community.”
Simone Development Companies acquired the 7.9-acre site in 2011 and transformed it from a closed Postal
Service equipment transfer station to the modern Throggs Neck Shopping Center.
The property was developed in partnership by Simone Development Companies with Aaron Malinsky of Curbcut Urban Partners and Paul Slayton of Slayton Investments.
