The Bethesda grapevine reports that this construction is the beginning of what will be an Equinox Gym in downtown Bethesda (on Woodmont, between Hampden and Elm). Sitting on the site of the old Washington Sports Club (which moved to a new location on Wisconsin Avenue about a year ago), it looks at if the entire building is coming down in preparation for this upscale gym. Reports are that the new facility will consist of 31,000 square feet over four floors and will have an indoor pool, a cafe and juice bar, five exercise studios and a full service spa. Equinox is based in New York and currently oerates 46 locations nationwide. The Bethesda location will take about 18 months to complete. We’ll keep filling you in on its progress!!!
