New Fitness Club Coming to Crystal City

An 18,000 square foot fitness club may be coming to the southern end of Crystal City.

Fitness First, which operates a club in the Verizon building in Courthouse, is asking the county board to approve the conversion of unoccupied office and retail space for health club use at 2450 Crystal Drive.

The building, which houses DeVry University and recently became the home of a new Pizza Autentica restaurant, sits between 23rd Street and the ramp from Reagan National Airport. If its site plan amendment is approved, Fitness First would occupy the last available ground floor retail space in the building.

County staff is recommending the board approve the conversion as well as a greatly reduced parking ratio that would only require about 40 reserved garage parking spots. The spots would be monitored to see if additional parking becomes necessary.

The Fitness First location in Courthouse charges a $19.95 monthly fee. The company has 17 locations in the D.C. area.

No word on when the Crystal City location might open should the board approve its site plan request this weekend.
