Front & York, the highly-anticipated mixed-use development transforming Brooklyn’s coveted DUMBO neighborhood, announced that premier healthy lifestyle brand Life Time is committing to a large portion of commercial space at the development. It will be home to the company’s first athletic lifestyle resort in Brooklyn.
Designed with striking modern luxury architecture, lavish amenities, exquisite finishes and cutting-edge health, wellness and nutrition programming, the 77,000-square-foot destination will deliver unmatched resort-style amenities inside the most talked-about development in Brooklyn.
Highlights include five dedicated studios for group fitness, yoga, Pilates, Barre, and indoor cycle; a spacious fitness floor with cardio and weight-based equipment and space for small group and personal training; an indoor lap pool, whirlpools and saunas—and a regulation-size basketball court.
The club will also include Kids Academy for children ages 3 months to 11 years, LifeCafe, a fast-casual cafe serving healthy, fresh-made meals, nutritional products and supplements, and LifeSpa, a full-service salon and spa. Each residence of Front & York will receive one complimentary membership.
“As Life Time continues to expand throughout the five boroughs, Brooklyn has been a primary focus,” said Parham Javaheri, Life Time Executive Vice President, Real Estate and Development. “The vision of Front & York aligns perfectly with our mission to provide the ultimate experience in healthy living, healthy aging and healthy entertainment to communities. We are eager for this project to move forward.”
Developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK, Front & York will bring condominium homes, rental residences, retail, and parking to a formerly-vacant lot in DUMBO. In addition to one- to four-bedroom condominium residences, the development will offer one of the most comprehensive, resort-style amenities packages in New York City, including one of the city’s largest private parks, a gorgeous space designed by Michael Van Valkenburg Associates, who envisioned the neighborhood’s beloved Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Designed to activate the surrounding streetscapes, Front & York features extra-wide, tree-lined sidewalks that will create a lively, plaza-like experience for the neighborhood. Life Time is another element of the development, which will add life and vibrancy to a corner of DUMBO that has long been underutilized. With this incredible offering, Front & York will be one of the few full-service luxury lifestyle destinations in the neighborhood.
"Front & York's collaboration with Life Time will bring a world-class and unique health and wellness experience to DUMBO," said Jason Schreiber, Principal of CIM Group, co-developer of Front & York. “Life Time will benefit the local community while also complementing the full-service, luxury lifestyle we are creating for residents of Front & York.”
Designed by Morris Adjmi, the striking building complements DUMBO’s Belgian-block streets, historic warehouse architecture, and contemporary lifestyle, with the highly-detailed façade showcasing signature arches inspired by the spandrels of the Manhattan Bridge.
Front & York will open mid-2021, with Life Time anticipated to open in 2022.
