Already known as the Fitness District, thanks to its concentration of boutique fitness studios and retailers, the Flatiron District will soon offer another option for shaping up. Meridian Retail Leasing has arranged a long-term lease for GRIT BXNG at 9 E. 16th St.
James Famularo (pictured), president of New York retail leasing for Meridian, represented the landlord and the tenant in this transaction. The new location spans more than 3,500 square feet of usable ground-floor space, with an additional 2,000 square feet on the lower level.
The upscale fitness studio will offer high-intensity group classes with boxing discipline at its core. GRIT BXNG was the brainchild of Bill Zanker, who has also built several consumer brands including Great American Backrub and The Learning Annex.
