Building Permits Filed for Planet Fitness’ New Bed Stuy Location

Property owner Infinity Real Estate recently filed new building applications for 1245 Fulton Street in Bed Stuy, where Planet Fitness inked a lease in October. Although the gym had reportedly originally planned to add a second story onto the existing building, now it looks like the landlord is planning to build an entirely new one-story commercial building with 7,836 square feet. Demolition permits have not yet been filed, and the DOB disapproved the gym’s previous alteration permits. Permits list the architect as George A Fanous of SBLM Architects.

PFit inked a lease in early October for 22,500 square feet, with plans to open in January 2015. Asking rent is $50 a foot. This will be the gym’s 28th New York City location and its sixth one in Brooklyn. If you live in the neighborhood, are you looking forward to having a big chain gym in Bed Stuy?
