Fathom CrossFit Announces Plans to Open at Mercado del Barrio

San Diego, CA, September 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Fitness-minded visitors this fall to Mercado del Barrio will be able to work up a sweat at Fathom CrossFit, the latest business to announce plans to open at the mixed-use project located in the heart of San Diego’s Barrio Logan neighborhood.

Fathom CrossFit will open a 3,254 SF studio in the fall of 2013, said Kevin McCook, vice president of development for Shea Properties, retail developer at Mercado del Barrio. “We are very excited to have CrossFit join us at Mercado del Barrio. It’s a great new fitness concept and with the Community College now under construction, should do very well here now and in the future.” McCook said.

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program designed to help people gain a broad understanding of general fitness through a mix of aerobics, muscle training, gymnastics and weight lifting.

Already open at Mercado del Barrio is a 36,000-square-foot Northgate Market, one of the nation’s leading Hispanic markets selling day-to-day grocery items and prepared foods. Along with Northgate Market, other tenants already open include Tocumbo Ice Cream, T-Mobile and Hispanic Professional Services, a tax-preparation business. Opening soon will be Little Caesar’s and National Laundry & Dry Clean.

Located just under the Coronado Bay Bridge and adjacent to the historic Chicano Park, Mercado del Barrio is one block south of Interstate 5 and one block north of a San Diego trolley stop. Space is currently available in one of the two retail buildings either on the corner of Main and Cesar Chavez, just across from a new community college, or on the corner of National and Cesar Chavez. All 92 apartment units above the retail are currently leased.

The brokers on the deal were McKinney Advisory Group representing the tenant and Cushman & Wakefield, Inc., representing Shea Properties.
