Life Time Group Bringing Pickleball to Penn Plaza

As the popularity of pickleball continues to grow in New York City, so does the planned opening of new facilities offering the sport. Healthy lifestyle fitness brand Life Time recently entered into a lease for more than 53,000 square feet at PENN 1, located at 250 West 34th Street. The facility that will spread across the ground through 3rd floors will open in two phases — the renovated existing fitness facility on the 2nd and 3rd floors to open this summer, while the new ground level space that will feature seven pickleball courts is slated to open in early 2024. The new athletic club’s primary entrance will front the building’s 33rd street plaza facing Madison Square Garden and benefit from the high foot traffic in the vicinity of the sports and event venue as well as Penn Station. Terms of the deal were not released.
