Health club plans downtown location
A new “judgment-free” fitness center is coming to downtown Grand Rapids.
PF Michigan Group has leased a 24,797-square-foot space at 234 Market St. for a Planet Fitness, according to NAI Wisinski West Michigan.
Northville-based PF Michigan Group, a major Planet Fitness franchisee, currently owns and operates 47 locations throughout Michigan and northwest Ohio. Planet Fitness focuses on providing a diverse, judgment-free zone where a lasting, active lifestyle can be built.
“We are very excited to be in the ‘middle of everything’ in a downtown setting. As with any new location, we look for opportunities to bring convenient access to Planet Fitness’ affordable, judgment-free atmosphere,” said Mary Scott, director of marketing for Planet Fitness.
Agents Todd Leinberger, Mary Anne Wisinski-Rosely and Jason Makowski of NAI Wisinski of West Michigan represented the landlord, Maplegrove Property Management, and agent Lars Anderson of NorthStar Commercial represented the tenant in the transaction.
“Maplegrove Property Management is pleased to announce that Planet Fitness, one of the largest and fastest growing fitness centers in the country, will serve as the anchor tenant of the approximately 31,000 square feet of commercial space located at 234 Market Ave.,” said David Emdin, COO of Maplegrove Property Management LLC.
Planet Fitness anticipates opening late spring of 2020. There will be special offers for members who join early and around the grand opening.
