A boutique fitness studio that focuses on stretching is planned for a commercial space on Main Street.
A Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. man has applied to Planning & Zoning for site approval so that Stretch Lab can be installed at 86 Main St.
Stretch Lab is a “wellness concept that offers one-on-one assisted stretching and group stretching classes, to improve mobility and flexibility,” applicant Adam Kanzer said in his application.
“Our demographics are equal parts men and women, and cover a range from young people to serious athletes to older people who are trying to stay active and continue the lifestyle they currently enjoy,” he said.
Under the New Canaan Zoning Regulations, service establishments are permitted in the Retail A zone with site plan approval as long as a retail component faces the street and occupies a certain amount of the commercial space (see page 74 here).
The Planning & Zoning Commission is scheduled to consider the Stretch Lab application as well as similar application a little further up Main Street, for Club Pilates, at its regular meeting Tuesday.
The commercial space at 86 Main has been vacant since March, when women’s clothing retailer Irresistibles moved to Elm Street.
Stretch Lab will occupy an 1,800-square-foot space with 20 percent of it dedicated to retail, according to the application.
“We sell Stretch Lab branded and unbranded leggings, T-shirts, socks, pants, sweatshirts, tank tops, water bottles, stretch mats, stretching straps, duffel bags and more,” the application said. “The rest of the studio will be comprised of 10 stretching tables, where our certified flexologists will work with members. The studio will accommodate up to 10 employees and 10 customers.”
