STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The fourth Staten Island-based LA Fitness opened Friday in The Boulevard, a new $180 million shopping center anchored by ShopRite in New Dorp, according to a company spokesperson.
The new 38,000-square-foot gym, located on the second floor of 2656 Hylan Blvd., features a 25 yard two lane lap pool, whirlpool spa, functional training area, separate room for group training, a special group exercise area and locker rooms with showers, saunas and steam rooms, said LA Fitness in a statement to the Advance/SILive.com.
The amenities complement an array of equipment, including more than 100 pieces of cardio equipment with individual viewing screens, selectorized circuit training, and free weight areas.
“We offer members a variety of group fitness classes seven days a week, including aqua, indoor cycling, dance classes, and yoga. Personal training is also available for a separate fee,” said the company in its statement.
The new gym joins LA Fitness studios in Greenridge, Port Richmond and Travis.
As part of the finishing touches of the multi-level 356,000-square-foot shopping center, an abstract sculpture by artist David Boyajian, which represents dancing seedlings sprouting from the earth, was installed onsite last month. Kimco Realty, the Long Island-based developer of the new shopping center, has dubbed the sculpture “Renaissance,” to signify the “rebirth” of the shopping center, formerly known as Hylan Plaza.
According to Kimco Realty, other stores that will be opening in The Boulevard include:
Ulta Beauty; LA Fitness; Angelina’s Kitchen; Astor Barbers; Bath & Body Works, Chase; Cigar Emporium; Corniche Cleaners; CVS, Diamond Braces; Hawaii Poke Bowl; JPMorgan Chase Bank; L’Artigiano Coffee Shop; Hawaii Poke Bowls; On a Roll, Angel Tips Nail Salon; Ashton Hall; Le Peep; Red Lobster; Mattress Firm; Michael’s Jewelry; Modern Acupuncture; Napoli Pizza; New China Buffet; New York Man; Reliance Wine & Liquor; Salon Illusion; Sese Nail Spa; Sushi Hibachi Buffet; Spectrum; Quest Diagnostics; The Hop Shoppe and Urban Planet.
