24 Hour Fitness to Open First Washington DC Location


California-based fitness center chain 24 Hour Fitness has signed a lease for a 40,000-square-foot location at Art Place in Washington, D.C.’s Fort Totten neighborhood, according to a press release.

The mixed-use development, which is planned to open in 2021, will be built up by the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation. The company owns more than 430 clubs in 13 U.S. states.

According to the press release, the new location will be the fitness chain’s first branch in D.C. and sixth in the region.

“As we continue our expansion plans in the Northeast, we’re excited to bring a flagship club location to the Fort Totten neighborhood in Washington, D.C. The Fort Totten Art Place project is remarkable and we’re delighted to be a part of it,” Raymond Dewhirst, a senior director at 24 Hour Fitness, said in a statement.

Jane Cafritz, a Cafritz Foundation board member, said that D.C. is recognized as one of the country’s most educated and fittest cities, and proximity to diverse health and wellness offerings is a top priority.

“We welcome the opportunity to provide our residents and the larger Fort Totten neighborhood access to a full-service health and fitness club as we continue to partner with top lifestyle and cutting-edge retailers at Art Place,” said Cafritz.

24 Hour Fitness will offer functional training equipment, including cycle rooms, personal and group training sessions, among other additional offerings, as per the press release.

The store will be located below the 520-unit apartment residence, The Modern at Art Place, at 400 Galloway Street NE.
