As consumers become increasingly health-conscious, fitness centers are playing a more central role in their daily lives. Due to the rapid growth of the $30 billion health and fitness industry and the growing interest in pursuing healthy lifestyles, Brookfield Properties has incorporated fitness and wellness concepts into its redevelopment strategy. As more fitness options are added to our properties, our shopping centers are transforming into lifestyle destinations which offer shoppers more than traditional retail, and appeal to their health and wellness requirements.
Peloton kiosks, micro-stores, and inline spaces are now available at 9 of our properties, including Natick Mall, Park Meadows, The Streets at Southpoint, Kenwood Towne Centre, The Woodlands Mall, and Oakbrook Center. The brand is growing within our portfolio, with four new stores projected to open in 2019.
We are thrilled to be introducing fresh ideas and experiences to local communities and are excited to continue bringing new fitness centers and retailers to our shopping centers.
With properties situated in some of the most highly trafficked areas of the United States, we offer the ideal fitness space for your leasing needs, including the best spaces for your fitness and wellness centers that can introduce you to our health-conscious consumers.
