Body Unique, the fitness studio that opened almost exactly a year ago on Fifth Avenue between Fifth and Sixth Streets, will be moving at the end of February to a new home at 150 Fourth Avenue, between Butler and Douglass, in part of the ground floor retail space of the new 12-story, 95-unit Arias Park Slope.
According to a Body Unique representative, the reason for the move was "ongoing issues with the building and the landlord's lack of response to the issues." When they re-open in March, they'll continue to offer services including personal and semi-private training, boot camps, and fitness programs for kids and teens.
The Arias already has a fitness center, and other amenities in the building include a putting green, a rooftop terrace with fire pits, a dining area, and private cabanas. The building opened in April 2011, and rents range from $2,538 to $4,740 per month. The ground floor has about 6,000 square feet of retail space, a rarity among new construction on the avenue.
