WEST SEATTLE BIZNOTE: Orangetheory Fitness coming to The Whittaker

Another commercial space at The Whittaker (4755 Fauntleroy Way SW; WSB sponsor) has been leased. Orangetheory Fitness will move into a 3,905-square-foot space in the south building, Weingarten Realty confirms. Orangetheory Fitness is a chain with hundreds of locations, specializing in what it calls “heart-rate-based interval training.” You can see its future location on Weingarten’s Whittaker “site map” above, which also shows that nobody is signed yet for what was to be the Whole Foods space – the site map indicates that could go to two tenants. (The other four businesses shown on the site map – BECU, CityMD, MOD Pizza, and T-Mobile – were announced a year ago and expected to open later this year.)

    YAY! Love Orangetheory! This will be a perfect location for commuting home on the C Line and stopping for an evening class!

    rumor is Safeway from Jefferson Square signed a lease to move into the large space.

      We’ve heard that rumor and many others about various bigboxes…

        I heard Safeway was moving there and Grocery outlet is moving into Jefferson square. I sure hope not!!!

      I would imagine the purchase of WFM by Amazon will give them the ability to move forward with previously stalled/canceled store openings.

    My prayers have been answered!  I’ve been waiting for an OrangeTheory to open up for the past few years.  Tired of going to Capitol Hill.  The BEST workout ever!  Yay!!!

    Funny I’ve read about Orangetheory a few months ago researching workout programs and then was annoyed that they were all north of the ship canal and didn’t deem any of us worthy…. I stand corrected!

    Yay!  I love orangetheory soooo much!   I don’t have to drive to Lower Queen Anne anymore!

    If you like Orange Theory, you will LOVE HIIT Lab! West Seattle’s own homegrown HIIT workout! Check it out!

      Second that. HIIT lab is way better in my opinion then Orange Theory, but still clad to have more workout option in West Seattle.

    Best news I’ve heard about biz ever!

    Blech.  If you are my FB friend, please don’t post about your #orangetheory workout.  #overit
