A pilates studio is planned for a commercial space in downtown New Canaan, according to an application that is to come before the Planning & Zoning Commission on Tuesday. Core Burn Pilates is to be located in the former L’Amoire space at 102 Park St., according to applications for approval of a sign out front of the prominent brick-exterior building and site plan to allow a change in use from retail to personal services. According to a narrative filed on behalf of property owner Caroline Realty LLC, nothing is changing with the building and the new tenant will have access to a large parking lot off of Cherry Street.
The space had been occupied by L’Armoire for 34 years, according to the narrative from the LLC’s managing partner, Rob Mallozzi. “Last July I received a call from a neighboring businesses alerting me to moving vans outside of that location; the tenant moved out without a word leaving a year left on the lease,” Mallozzi said in the letter. L’Armoire’s owner was Diane Roth.
