WICHITA — There are deals for two new Wichita Planet Fitness sites, though the chain still isn’t talking about its plans here.
Have You Heard? previously reported that the company is working on locations in the former Star Lumber space at Normandie Center at Central and Woodlawn, at Marina Lakes at 21st and Amidon where a new Walmart Neighborhood Market is and also at the 21st and Maize area.
Since then, Scott Harper of Landmark Commercial Real Estate andGrant Tidemann of J.P. Weigand & Sons finalized a deal for the Marina Lakes space.
On Friday, Tidemann and Landmark’s Nick Esterline finalized a deal for the former bowling alley space at 2350 N. Maize Road. That’s whereCountryside West Lanes closed in 2007.
It looks like there may already be demo work going on at the possible Planet Fitness space at Normandie.
Planet Fitness isn’t the only new gym coming to the city.
Gold’s Gym International also has been working on sites here. In fact, it appears it was negotiating for some of the same space Planet Fitness nabbed.
Earlier this year, Have You Heard? reported that a Gold’s deal at Harry and Rock may already be done.
Both companies are being similarly silent. We should hear something from them soon, though.
