This boutique fitness concept expects to open in Camp North End in February.
Bloc. is relocating from Dilworth with plans for a 3,000-square-foot studio at that adaptive-reuse project. The space at 1701 N. Graham St. is in one of six warehouse and industrial buildings being redeveloped by ATCO Properties & Management in partnership with Shorenstein Properties LLC.
The project spans 1.3 million square feet across a 75-acre site.
Bloc. is owned and managed by Kadi Fit founder Katie Dixon. It’s a one-stop shop for fitness and wellness with both a physical and mental focus. That means group exercise classes such as functional, high-intensity interval training, boxing, cardio dance and yoga as well as meditation and workshops dialed in on mindset and goal-setting.
Plans call for a modified class schedule to start, with weekly pop-up classes from Feb. 1 until March 31. The cost will be $10 per class for the public and free for Camp North End tenants.
In April 2020, Bloc. will begin regular classes and other events. It also plans to provide Camp North End businesses with private workshops and coaching.
Recently, Camp North End announced that Bow Ramen, Bleu Bar Bistro and Wentworth and Fenn had signed deals for food stalls. All three are targeting a March opening.
Construction continues on Leah & Louise, a concept by James Beard-nominated chef Greg Collier, and Free Range Brewing, which is adding a second taproom there. Both establishments have set target opening dates of March 2020.
In total, Camp North End has signed eight food and beverage concepts. Additional tenants include loose-leaf tea bar Birch Fine Tea, healthy food purveyor Chop & Chisel and coffee bar Hex Coffee Roasters.
Ascent Real Estate Partners is the leasing representative for the site’s retail space.
