The owners behind Chelsea Piers, the mega sports/entertainment/events complex overlooking the Hudson River on Manhattan’s westside, plan to develop a 52,000-square-foot fitness facility at the base of the new luxury rental tower, 33 Bond Street.
The new Chelsea Piers outpost will be situated in 21,000 square feet of the building’s ground floor and 31,000 square feet of its lower lever, according to Commercial Observer. TF Cornerstone, the building’s developer, had been searching for the right gym tenant, something more than the “typical, run-of-the-mill building gym,” Curbed reports. Though no specific details about the new facility have been revealed yet, Chelsea Piers describes its 33 Bond Street project as a “world class fitness club,” according to the article.
Located in Downtown Brooklyn between Schermerhorn and Livingston Streets, 33 Bond Street is a 25-story, 714 unit, mixed-use development offering 143 affordable apartments ranging from $897/month for studios; $963/month for one-bedrooms; and $1,166/month for two-bedrooms. Along with discounted membership to the high-end fitness enter, amenities for residents include a 24 hour-attended lobby, on-site residence manager, sun terrace, computer lounge, party rooms, pet grooming, and bike storage.
Residents are scheduled to move into 33 Bond Street later this summer, while the new Chelsea Piers facility is slated to open sometime next year, The Real Deal says. The developers are still looking for tenants for the remaining 8,700-plus square feet of commercial space in the building, and are reportedly meeting with high-end retailers and restaurants as well as artisanal food vendors, Commercial Observer adds.
Founded in 1995, the massive Chelsea Piers complex spans 28 acres, from 17th to 23rd Streets, and offers entertainment venues as well as facilities for more than 25 different sports, including an ice rink, indoor swimming pool, batting cages, a driving range, and a bowling alley. The company opened a location in Stamford, Connecticut in 2012.
