Ridgefield, Conn. -- Gap tapped Schimenti Construction to build the company’s flagship Athleta location in New York City.
The 3,922-sq.-ft. store, which features performance apparel and gear for the active woman, is in a landmark building on Columbus Avenue, in Manhattan. The space was completed in 13 weeks from start to opening.
The store, designed by Phillips Partnership, Atlanta, has a warm, rustic brick and wood décor. It has three specific sections — yoga, running and exploring — and offers in-store fitness lectures, yoga and Zumba classes.
Athleta was founded in 1998 and was acquired by Gap in 2008.
