Chuze Fitness Claims Former Food for Less Space in Anaheim

Chuze Fitness signed a 10-year, 44,800-square-foot lease and plans to open a new facility at 121 N. Beach Blvd. in Anaheim, CA. Chuze is currently underway on its interior build out, and plans to open later this month.

Chuze Fitness will be located adjacent to Walmart, as part of a two-tenant, 120,000-square-foot building. The space, which was formerly occupied by Food for Less, is well-located and highly visible at the intersection of Beach Blvd. and Lincoln Ave.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Chad Iafrate represented the tenant. NKF’s Mark Baziak and Geoff Foley advised the landlord, Auburndale Properties.

“Chuze Fitness, a growing fitness brand, was seeking a high profile location and was willing to negotiate flexible lease terms with our client,” said Baziak. “We feel that this was an ideal tenant for this center that will generate great cross-over traffic and long-term value for ownership.”
