The 22,000-square foot space is Alder Partners’ 37th Planet Fitness franchise location in Greater Atlanta, with more to come

ATLANTA (November 28, 2022)Franklin Street congratulates Planet Fitness development partner Alder Partners on the opening of its new 22,000-square-foot fitness club in Sandy Springs, a suburb just north of Atlanta. The club officially opened in October and is Alder Partners’ 37th club in the Greater Atlanta metro.

As Alder Partners’ exclusive leasing advisor in the Atlanta market, Franklin Street’s retail tenant representation team, led by Senior Director Greg Eisenman, helped secure the new location.

“We are excited to see Alder Partners celebrate another successful Planet Fitness opening in the Atlanta market,” Eisenman said. “The Sandy Springs location is exceptionally located within a bustling, well-established retail corridor, adding a convenient, high value fitness destination to the neighborhood, while attracting increased foot traffic for the surrounding retail.  I want to thank Fred Battisti of First National Realty Partners for his hard work and collaboration, on behalf of the Landlord, in getting this deal completed.”

Planet Fitness is a household name in fitness in Atlanta, while offering affordable memberships and state of the art equipment. Located at 6335 Roswell Road., the new Sandy Springs fitness center is minutes away from local businesses, strong residential neighborhoods, restaurants and shopping centers.

“We are thrilled to bring our ‘Judgment Free’ fitness experience to the Sandy Springs community as we continue to grow in the Atlanta area,” said Kass McInnis, VP of Real Estate & Development with Alder Partners. “We look forward to welcoming anyone, at any fitness level, into our friendly, comfortable and non-intimidating environment.”

Planet Fitness gyms have state-of-the-art cardio machines and strength equipment, a 30-Minute Express Circuit, flat-screen televisions throughout, fully equipped granite locker rooms with day lockers, showers, plus an exclusive Black Card®Spa area that includes tanning, massage chairs, HydroMassage beds, and the newly released amenity of meditation pods for Black Card® Members.
