A gym seems like such the wrong thing to put in the Trace retail space. From the PSBJ, Fitness club opens, plans Seattle expansion:
Xplore Fitness, owned by Travis and Mari Blackford, took over the space previously occupied by Pure Fitness at 808 Second Ave. The company plans to open a First Hill location at the Trace Lofts building at 12th Avenue and Madison Street sometime in May, according to a spokesman.
On the other hand it will be nice to have a gym in the building, maybe I’d actually go to the gym then, and it won’t push HOA fees up.
Update: Apparently this isn’t a done deal and the space is still available.
