Construction on Sandy Springs’ new from-scratch downtown, City Springs, is hitting the backstretch, with eyes on a summer 2018 debut for its major pieces.
And if initial tenant announcements are any indication, breaking a sweat around here will be ... well, no sweat.
This week, Sandy Springs officials relayed that two fitness concepts—SculptHouse and TURN Indoor Cycling + Strength—are the first signed retailers at what’s planned to be the Fulton County city’s nerve center for government, arts, and walkable shopping outdoors.
Construction on the 14-acre site, located just north of where Roswell Road crosses Interstate 285, launched in 2015. Components will include a performing arts center, conference center, 4-acre green space, retail, residential, and city offices.
The fitness retailers will operate at the base of Aston City Springs, a 294-unit residential complex being developed by Selig Enterprises and Carter, the city’s partners. Both will take 3,200-square-foot slots.
TURN is described as a boutique cycling and fitness biz comprised of two studios geared toward “providing clients a total-body workout.”
SculptHouse, meanwhile, is “the only studio that combines the uber-trendy Lagree Megaformer with the Woodway Curve (an NFL-approved human-powered treadmill) for a core-sculpting, low-impact workout,” officials said in a release. The “upscale, industrial-luxe” studio itself will fuse “the pulse of the Sandy Springs fitness scene with the soul of the local culture.”
Aston City Springs, the residential piece, will offer 29,000 square feet of retail space total, officials said.
