East West Commercial Real Estate is pleased to announce the May 2013 opening of Fitness System Land Park at 1250 Sutterville Road in the City of Sacramento. Fitness System is part of a local network of athletic clubs with three additional locations in West Sacramento, Lodi, and Woodland.
The newest facility comprises 17,000 square feet and is located directly across from the Sacramento Zoo and Sprouts Market / La Bou Cafe at the corner of Sutterville Road & Land Park Drive. Sean Covell, owner / operator of locally based Fitness System, is excited to provide a much needed athletic club to Land Park residents and intends to become active within the community right away. The club offers free weights, machines, aerobics and child care on the first floor, while members engaged in cardio workouts upstairs have the unique opportunity to watch the giraffes at the Sacramento Zoo located just across the street. See related article from Sacramento Business Journal and CoStar.
Partially re-developing this 39,850 square foot, two-story, former State of California office building was a welcome change for commercial property owners Steve Williams and James Gee, who witnessed painfully as their building gradually lost occupancy over time, until 85% of the space became vacant. According to Williams, “the high vacancy created the ability to re-think how we use the space, thanks to a terrific concept initiated by East West Commercial Real Estate.”
Brian Jacks, Regional Vice President of East West Commercial Real Estate, recognized an opportunity to back-fill the space with a tenant who offers a much needed service to the Land Park community. “It wasn’t exactly a slam dunk,” said Jacks, who brokered the transaction, “but we were able to work with the City of Sacramento to overcome certain hurdles in a very short period of time.”
One Land Park resident who is looking forward to joining Fitness System as a new member is Rob Fong, past member of the Sacramento City Council and Sacramento School Board. Fong said “I think it’s a great fit and I’m so excited for the opportunity to join a quality club in my own neighborhood.” In partnership with the City of Sacramento, Fong is actively engaged in promoting foreign trade between Sacramento and Chongqing (largest city in China) through his non-profit organization California – Chongqing Trade and Commerce Organization.
With over 15,000 square feet of Land Park office space still available at 1250 Sutterville Road, it’s a terrific opportunity for prospective tenants to sign leases with great financial incentives. Also, given that Interstate 5 is located less than ¼ mile away, access to Downtown Sacramento and nearby residential communities is quite convenient.
