A gym operator has leased 12,000 square feet at a retail center in the heart of downtown South Orange, The Goldstein Group said Monday.
The operator, Blink Fitness, leased the space at 451 Valley St. at a property owned by 451 Realty Management LLC, the retail brokerage said. Lew Finkelstein, executive vice president of The Goldstein Group, represented the owner.
“We received a tremendous amount of interest for this site, which is located next to Stop & Shop and CVS,” Chuck Lanyard, president of The Goldstein Group, said in a prepared statement. “The space was a perfect location for a fitness center.”
Owned by Equinox Fitness, Blink Fitness offers a budget-friendly gym membership, Lanyard said. Its new home has ample parking and is located in a densely populated region.
