PNT Group Fitness & Cycling, which has been offering group cardio classes on Jackson Avenue for the past five years, is closing.
Tara Faye, the owner of the popular cycling studio located at 10-68 Jackson Ave., sent out an e-mail to her members this morning notifying them that PNT will close on March 12.
“After five years in Long Island City, the owners of 10-68 Jackson Avenue notified me that they will be demolishing the building in order to build luxury condominiums,” Faye wrote.
Plans were filed with the Department of Buildings last June for the construction of a seven-story, 21-unit building at that site.
George Konnaris, the architect working on the plan, said at the time that they would be luxury condos.
Faye wrote in her e-mail that “It’s been a blessing to have opened in such a growing neighborhood, however, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for small businesses to find affordable locations given the growth of the neighborhood.”
She said that customers who pay monthly will be prorated to the end of March 12 and customers who bought minutes should exhaust them ahead of the closing date.
Meanwhile, Faye is opening a new studio near Bryant Park in Manhattan called FIT to a T. It will soft open days after the PNT closure, on March 16, with a grand opening scheduled for April 4, according to her website.
