Continuing its ambitious expansion, Chelsea Piers signed a lease for 72,000 square feet at soon-to-rise apartment tower 24-11 Jackson Ave. in Long Island City’s Court Square neighborhood. It will be the Chelsea Piers Fitness brand’s seventh location in the city and tri-state area.
The mostly residential project is being developed by Tavros and Charney Companies in partnership with Incoco Capital. Construction is to start soon and wrap up in 2026.
The facility will offer building residents and members comprehensive health-and-wellness features such as an outdoor pool, indoor basketball court and track group fitness studios and athletic training spaces.
Chelsea Piers was repped by JLL. The firm’s retail managing director Erin Grace, who worked on the deal with Matt Ogle, said the project’s location and design made it a “natural decision” for the company.
To rise on the northeast corner of Jackson Avenue and 23rd Street, the 55-story tower will have approximately 600 apartments and 10,000 square feet of retail space.
Tavros partner Colin Rankowitz said, “As a born and raised New Yorker, I couldn’t be more excited to play a small role in the expansion of Chelsea Piers’ iconic brand.”
Rapidly expanding from its 1 million-square foot Hudson River flagship, Chelsea Piers’ “strategic rollout” includes a 56,000 square-foot fitness club at SL Green’s One Madison skyscraper to open in 2024.
As we recently reported, Chelsea Piers Field House Brooklyn launched a 60,000 square-foot facility at TF Cornerstone’s 595 Dean St. at the Pacific Park complex.
