B-TOWN BIZ: LA Fitness files for permits for former SAAR’s/Staples spot
LA Fitness, which is planning on moving into the space formerly occupied by SAAR’s and Staples, has filed for permit applications for improvements on the property at 14905 4th Ave SW.
According to a note in this month’s City Manager report (PDF file, p. 238), the proposed scope of work includes “partial demolition, alteration and remodel of the existing 45,030 square foot building into a health club with basketball, sales, racquetball, kid’s klub, aerobics, cycling, pool, spa, sauna, locker room, free wights, cardio and circuit training area.”
The project valuation is estimated to be $4 million dollars.
As we previously reported, Jim Alexander, Vice President of Merlone Geier Partners told The B-Town Blog on Feb. 20, 2013 that they “…hope to have them open by the end of the year.”
Obviously they’re running behind in their proposed timeline.
There are three LA Fitness gyms in the Seattle area, with the nearest located at 350 Baker Boulevard in Tukwila.
