CIM Group has secured a long-term lease with healthy lifestyle brand Life Time to bring a 77,000ft² luxury athletic resort to Front & York, a mixed-use, full-service luxury residential and retail project at 85 Jay Street in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighbourhood.

Front & York will be Life Time’s first location in Brooklyn and will be a health, fitness, sports and wellness option for the Front & York residents and the broader community.

CIM and Brooklyn-based mixed-use urban development company LIVWRK are co-developing Front & York.

The Front & York development is located on 3.1 acres, spanning an entire city block. It has more than 1,500ft of street frontage in the heart of Dumbo neighbourhood at the base of the Brooklyn and the Manhattan Bridges.

Site work on the project commenced last summer. After completion, Front & York will offer 150,000ft² of new retail space, 408 residential condominium homes, and 320 rental apartments.

Furthermore, residents will have access to several amenities, including one of the largest private parks in Brooklyn.

Life Time will deliver resort-style amenities with the latest health, wellness and nutrition programming. It will include five studios for group fitness, yoga, Pilates, Barre and indoor cycle; fitness floor with modern cardio and weight-based equipment and space for group and personal training; indoor lap pool, whirlpools and saunas; and a regulation-size basketball court.

Besides, it will offer Kids Academy for children ages three months to 11 years, a full-service, fast-casual LifeCafe and LifeSpa, a full-service salon and spa.

Front & York provides easy access to multiple transportation options to Manhattan and other parts of Long Island.

It is located close to the York Street Subway Station and a short walk to the A and C lines at High Street, the Brooklyn Bridge, the East River Ferry Brooklyn Bridge Park/Dumbo Terminal and multiple bus lines.

CIM Group will offer development and operational expertise, including construction management, property management and leasing, to enhance its properties in Brooklyn and to bring new concepts to the neighbourhood.
