New Life for Bally's Building
Fitness center, restaurant to open in vacant Pearl Road location
The former Bally Total Fitness building, which has stood vacant since the gym closed in June 2009, is getting two new tenants.
A business called Elevated Fitness is planning to open a small workout facility on the upper floor of the building, 14783 Pearl Rd. The company has not yet sought an occupancy permit from the city, but has hung a sign on the building.
The Strongsville Bally's was one of 47 to close nationwide as part of the Chicago-based company's Chapter 11 restructuring.
"It's a very positive thing," Strongsville Economic Development Director Brent Painter said. "It's a tough vacancy, and it's going to be filled."
