FIT/ONE opens new fitness studio on more than 1.900 square metres rental space in “Otto Dix Passage” of ARCADIA Investment Group in Gera
On 31 March 2022, the well-known gym FIT/ONE opened its doors in the “Otto Dix Passage” on a total of 1,933 square metres of rental space. In November last year, ARCADIA Investment Group handed over the keys to the Europe-wide operator to expand their space. The lease agreement for the chain’s first fitness studio in the state of Thuringia was signed for a period of twelve years in 2020. Space for cardio and equipment training, variety of course offerings and relaxation in the integrated wellness area are offered to the new members in the centre of Gera. The highlights of the fitness studio are the modern MATRIX fitness equipment, studio scales for complete body analysis as well as massage chairs, sauna and solarium. The unrestricted accessibility of the studio is ensured by a separate entrance via museum square.
Already in April 2018, an investment company of ARCADIA Investment Group had acquired the former shopping centre and announced plans for an expansion and conversion. ARCADIA has been revitalising the building since early September 2020. The general contractor for the conversion of the “Otto Dix Passage” is Prehn Bauprojektmanagement GmbH from Lubmin. After its reopening, the newly designed shopping arcade will have around 16,500 square metres of usable space, meet modern building standards designed for sustainability, and have an attractive tenant mix with various types of use. The sustainability and quality of the property has already been confirmed by the German council of sustainable building with the “DGNB Gold pre-certificate”.
