BSA legalizes New York Sports Club in SoHo

Club opened a 16,000-square-foot location without permits. In June 2006, New York Sports Club received a Department of Buildings decision stating that the manufacturing zoning on its SoHo lot prohibited its proposed gym. Nevertheless, New York Sports Club opened the SoHo location one month later and applied to BSA to legalize the use. The gym, located at 225 Varick Street between Clarkson and West Houston Streets, is 16,741 sq.ft.

At BSA, New York Sports Club argued that its gym would not alter the character of the neighborhood. BSA agreed, granting a 10-year permit for the gym use on February 6, 2007.
