5th at L, Looking North (see more)

It took a loooong time to get past the unconfirmed stage (and even included an oopsie cat-out-of-the-bag last year by some PR folks), but today Forest City Washington is finally officially announcing that Vida Fitness is coming to the south end of the Twelve12 apartment building, now under construction on 4th Street SE between M and Tingey in the Yards.
Also in the 28,000-square-foot facility will be Vida's "affiliated concepts" Bang Salon and Aura Spa, and will also feature Vida's Penthouse Pool Club and Lounge, shown in the above-right drawing and described as a "membership-only urban resort featuring a rooftop pool deck with city and riverfront views and a variety of poolside lounging options and amenities."
Twelve12, when completed in mid-2014, will also be home to the neighborhood's first grocery store, a 50,000-square-foot Harris Teeter located on the north end of the block at 4th and M, in addition to the building's 218 apartments. There is also still 10,000 square feet of as-yet-unleased retail space. It is across the street from the Boilermaker Shops retail pavilion, set to open in early 2013, and kitty corner from both the Foundry Lofts and what will be a new 325ish-unit apartment building on the southwest corner of 4th and Tingey, expected to start construction in 2013.

I have never worked out at Vida but I used to go to Equinox gym at Tysons Corner. Equinox gym is the best gym I have ever to been in my life. It is very clean, they pretty much have every thing you can ask for in a gym, great service, the bicycling classes are amazing and it makes you feel to go the gym every day. But nothing comes cheap. The basic monthly gym membership was $140 per month. But, it is all worth it. I don't know if Vida provides the same kind of experience. I didn't read any good reviews on yelp about the one at Metropole. I am not sure about the new one on U street. The Tweleve12 is supposed to provide the same kind of amenities like the on on U street.

It will be interesting to see that block filled in and how that changes the streetscape approaching the yard. Is it just me, or has work at 1212 seemed to slow to a crawl in the last few weeks?

FYI, is the 'Live Transit info' a new tab? Pretty cool ..I am digging it.


JD says: (10/23/12 3:44 PM)
"New" if you mean in last four years or so, yes. :-)

Oh! Never noticed it.

I'm pretty excited about Bang coming to the neighborhood. I used to go to their U Street location and the prices were great for the quality of the cut.

And although the Penthouse Pool Lounge sounds dreadfully pretentious I'll admit I'd get a membership if the price is right.


JES says: (10/25/12 12:30 PM)
Yeah, I wonder if you can join the pool club without joining the gym itself...


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (10/25/12 1:24 PM)
I am sure the yards at the alternative universe aren't talking about pool.

Will it rival Capitol Skyline Hotel for awesesomely loud pool parties with scantily clad young women?
