We noticed that Planet Fitness has started renovations in its future location on Flatbush near Empire Boulevard in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. PFit has erected a sign on top of the Phat Albert building at 495 Flatbush Avenue, and we can see the fitness chain’s tell-tale purple walls through windows on the second floor. The gym will take up half the building’s second floor and a small portion of the first floor, roughly 2,000 square feet, according to DNAinfo.
It looks like Planet Fitness will open before the Crunch gym planned for 842 Lefferts Avenue in Crown Heights, which was hit by stop-work orders because it lacked the appropriate permits. And the PLG branch of Planet Fitness isn’t too far from its Flatbush location at Flatbush and Church avenues. Hat tip to this helpful Forum poster.
