This week's property is in the Fulton Street Plaza, #95 and 97. These locales used to be the home of the Fitness 2000 gym and Image Sun tanning salon. The gym has been gone for over a year, and the tanning salon closed five months ago. Both properties feature a basement, and the salon also has a mezzanine level.
The gym space (95) is 10,250 square feet and can be rented for $20/foot, which breaks down as $10 for the rent and another 10 for extras such as taxes and insurance. The salon features 2600 square feet and goes for $25/foot plus $10/foot for the extras. The spaces can be combined for one large retail space if desired.
Sabre Real Estate, which manages the whole plaza, is handling the listing. Contact Amanda at (516) 874-8070 for more information.
