Chelsea Piers Fitness Signs Lease as Flagship Retail for One Madison Ave.

SL Green Realty Corp. signed Chelsea Piers to a 55,780-square-foot, 20-year lease as the flagship retail tenant at One Madison Ave., its 1.4-million-square-foot office development in Midtown South. It will be the fitness facility’s fourth location and second in Manhattan. 

“Chelsea Piers is a best-in-class operator who shares the same belief as SL Green, that New York City is the greatest and most resilient city in the world and that One Madison Avenue will be the standard for the future work environment,” said Brett Herschenfeld, managing director at SL Green.  

“This state-of-the-art facility will deliver every fitness product and experience available in the market today, as well as new concepts and technology, which will set the high bar for health and wellness just as One Madison will set the high bar for new, sustainable office development,” he continued. 

Chelsea Piers Fitness was represented by JLL’s Erin Grace and Matt Ogle.
