Fitness Chain Signs Big Lease At Miami Worldcenter

A large fitness chain has signed a deal to lease space at Miami Worldcenter.

California-based Fitness International LLC signed the lease on November 4, according to a filing with Miami-Dade County.

Fitness International operates multiple brands, including LA Fitness.

The company is leasing approximately 35,363 square feet at Worldcenter in a 10 year deal, with four additional five-year options, the filing states.

As part of the deal, the company was given exclusivity through parts of Worldcenter.

In addition, Worldcenter is pledging that at least 95% of parking spaces in Worldcenter’s garage will be available for use by Fitness International. Customers of other retailers at Worldcenter will also have access to those spaces on a first-come first served basis.

Up to 90 minutes in the parking garage will be free if validated by Fitness customers, with unlimited free parking for 25 employees.

The seven-story garage is above the leased premises and must maintain at least 1,100 striped spaces, the filing says.

I love hammams. Had the most amazing one in the Middle East and a really nice strong man washed the majority of my entire body in the appropriate way. After you get to soak up the steam in cavern like rooms made entirely of white marble and get served tea and sweet delights. I highly recommend this type of service if we are lucky to have it in Miami.

Nice addition to the project. It will drive daily users and a lot of foot traffic to the site to support the businesses there.

Related companies from New York owns equinox not the related group from Miami. There’s no reason they wouldn’t if it was a good business decision. They are not exclusively in related companies projects

No but the TNM article says that LA Fitness has exclusively.
It would be hard to believe if that exclusively carried into individual buildings though.

False, Related Companies was founded in 1972 and Perez founded the Related Group seven years later with the backing of the former.

It would be lucky to look like Brickell, but will probably be a more common version, like what Midtown NYC is to the rest of Manhattan (but still far nicer cleaner and more tropical) since it’s a major transit hub.

Not exactly.
Miami world center land was all assembled in about 10 years, planned, and the infrastructure was all developed by the same team, and the buildings are individually owned and will mostly complete in 2025.
Brickell took about 100 years to fill in.

Brickell was a developed neighborhood by the end of the 1920s Florida land boom. It just redeveloped vertically starting in the 1960s. MWC was industrial property assembled and demolished for a clean slate only relatively recently.

From the look at these new restaurants in New York with banana leaf prints, neon and [fake] plants, I’d think NY was a wannabe Brickell.

Frequently there is a sign in front of Paramount saying parking is full, residents only. It is my understanding that parking lot is shared the world center lot. Where will all the cars fit? Or possibly I’m missing something.

Hopefully less cars are getting stolen from those lots as well as that was a major problem earlier this year at paramount.

Not what needs to be taking up the retail space. This plus the Lucid are giant detractors from what MWC could be as a destination.

MMN

How about we start with a coffee shop. Lucid does 0 for people that live downtown. This 40k gym does little to nothing. The gyms present in these buildings are nicer than an LA Fitness which is really barley above a plant fitness.

People that live downtown/MWC/Parkwest/Overtown need expanded softgood and f&b concepts.

Well, they started with a coffee shop. Laurel Brasserie opens next week… also a fancy restaurant will open right next to it from the same owner. LA Fitness is fine but yes, I hope Equinox will also open up soon. Lucid is ok, it’s in the corner of Paramount and it’s not that big of a space. Lots will follow, there is so much room for sooooo much more!

I just dont understand how the gyms expansion team thinks it is wise to open a fairly large gym when every single building in the near vacinity has gyms. It seems that the MWC team will sign leases as long as it is a large or reputal tenant. Desperate.

There is more to a gym than the building gym may offer. For example, I will drive 30 minutes for specific classes, like Zumba and yoga, with teachers that are outstanding.

Every gym in the buildings are literally for the people that do not workout regularly. They are all very limited in equipment and space.

Laurel Brasserie is NOT a coffee shop. it’s a restaurant that will serve frog legs. Also not the greatest first restaurant . Maple and Ash, if it’s still happening, is much better. Look at the demographics of the people coming and going from these new building nearby. They are not frog leg cuisine people. I’m fully standing by assessment MWC is squandering to date its retail footprint.

Those of us that live in MWC have been clamoring for a gym that is not PowerHouse. This is exactly what MWC needed and what everyone in my building has been buzzing about all day.

All the residents are trash in high rises. You got to move to a boutique building around 25 floors tops – you get all the same service and amenities but have less people to deal with and people are more respectful because they know each other.

Im sure for a more than substantial body work most of these byilding guys are sufficient. Why is it that in these gyms (e.g., la fitness, powerhouse) woman go fully with makeup and people are talking and looking themselves in the mirror half the time. These gyms spread the trash, you included.

Yes of course they do, even if at the very least to fill up their book cases for zoom calls or put out on their coffee table. Plus they’re great places to meet other intellectually minded people. Have you not been to Books & Books?

Surprisingly, Barnes & Noble was one of the few outliers that actually thrived during the pandemic, although maybe not enough that they will start opening new stores again.

Every gym in Miami is overcrowded. It is exactly what is needed in an area where there is no fitness center (with the exception of Powerhouse that just opened).

Powerhouse is way too expensive and relatively small. This is perfect for the area.

The lease is probably guaranteed for the full term (10-Years) with no burn off.
