St George, London's leading developer, announces that Gymbox, one of the capital's most vibrant gym operators, is set to open a new venue at Dickens Yard in Ealing.
The new premise, which comprises 17,206 sq ft, is the largest single unit at Dickens Yard and marks the twelfth location for Gymbox in the capital.
Gymbox is one of the most energising and motivating places to get fit, combining state-of the-art facilities with uniquely inspiring atmospheres. Growing from its popularity of bespoke fitness classes such as Latino hip-hop dance, mixed martial arts and aerial Pilates, Gymbox offers its guests live DJs and an army of expert personal trainers.
Craig Carson, Managing Director of St George, West London said:
"Gymbox is the latest piece in the ongoing success story of Dickens Yard. In the last 12 months we have announced that an exciting array of lifestyle brands will open at Dickens Yard ahead of the arrival of Elizabeth Line in 2018. With its growing mix of retail, restaurants, bars, and an artisan market, Dickens Yard is emerging as West London's premium destination to live, work and visit."
Marc Diaper, CEO of Gymbox, said: "We are delighted to be opening a new Gymbox in Dickens Yard. Ealing is a perfect fit for our brand expansion plans and marks our twelfth venue in the capital. We look forward to being part of Dickens Yard and complementing Ealing's flourishing retail and leisure offer."
Gymbox follows a wave of recent commercial announcements for Dickens Yard including Tonkotsu ramen bar, Balans Soho Society, Gail's Bakery, Jigsaw and The Skinny Kitchen clean-eating restaurant. The new tenants will join the likes of renowned British restaurant Charlotte's WS, Benham & Reeves estate agency and Tri Yoga which opened in December 2017. In October 2017 St George also launched Ealing Artisan, a new Sunday market operated by local event team Eat Me Drink Me.
With 700 new homes and 104,000 sq ft of retail space, Dickens Yard is an important part of the regeneration of Ealing Broadway, perfectly placed to benefit from the keenly anticipated opening of Crossrail. The new Elizabeth Line will slash commutes, with travel to Bond Street in 11 minutes, Liverpool Street in 18 minutes and Canary Wharf in 25 minutes, and see journeys made easier via high-capacity trains.
