Boxing Gym Backed by Stallone, Bieber Opening Upper East Side Outpost

rumble fitness buildingYo Adrian!

A boxing gym that counts Sylvester Stallone and Justin Bieber as investors is planning to open a location on Third Avenue by the end of the year, according to the company and reports.

Rumble, which has a location in Chelsea and is planning another in NoHo this summer, just signed a lease for 1495 Third Ave., between East 84th and 85th streets, The Real Deal reported.

Rumble will take over the entire five-story building, which used to house S Cavallo Antiques. SMA Equities bought the building last year for $18.2 million, city records show.

The new gym, which opened its first location in Chelsea earlier this year, specializes in boxing-inspired group fitness classes set to hip-hop and mood lighting, Rumble’s website says. The gym’s punching bags are actually filled with water.

The gym’s 10-year lease clocks in at about $1 million per year, Rumble spokeswoman Samantha Wenig said. She explained that the company chose the Upper East Side for its next location because the area’s demographic fits well with Rumble’s core customer.

Noah Neiman, who is a former master trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp and a cast member of Bravo’s “Work Out New York,” owns the company with Eugene Remm, Andy Stenzler and Anthony DiMarco.

Stallone invested in the company, which the New York Post called “the most anticipated group-fitness concept since SoulCycle.”

Winick Realty brokered the deal.

rumble fitnessRumble, the trendy boxing gym concept backed by investors such as “Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone and Justin Bieber, has inked a deal for its third Manhattan location.

The chain is leasing an entire five-story building owned by landlord Samy Mahfar at 1495 Third Avenue between East 84th and 85th streets, sources told The Real Deal. The 12,500-square-foot, 10-year deal is valued at about $1 million a year, sources added.

Darrell Rubens and Lee Block of Winick Realty Group represented Mahfar’s SMA Equities in the deal. Rumble was represented by Brandon Berger of RKF.

The new location is slated to open later this year.

All aboard the Second Avenue Subway real estate boom

ues-cornerIt’s here. Almost. We hope.

After nearly a century of development, the MTA says that Phase 1 of the Second Avenue Subway will be up and running by the end of December — bringing the Q line to a quartet of stations from 63rd to 96th streets.

It’s optimistic, if belated, news from a city teasing the line’s promise since before the Great Depression.

But this time there’s a sense that an end is finally in sight.

For this reason, some brokers say, expect new retail east of Second Avenue to include kids’ services like martial arts studios and tutoring centers.

But while the retail scene is experiencing new gloss — Barry’s Bootcamp is now at 1216 Second Ave., for instance — an explosion of new stores has yet to occur.

“Retailers are having a hard time pulling the trigger until they see the [actual] effect of the subway,” says Hillel Spinner, founder of Spinner Equities.

But “the beginning of the end is near … and experienced retailers are definitely looking into the area,” notes Hal Shapiro, senior director at the Winick Realty Group.
