LA Fitness has targeted Collierville as the next municipality for expansion in Shelby County.
The national fitness club, which already has five locations in the Memphis metropolitan area, plans to open another gym at 1048 W. Poplar Ave., west of Chick-fil-a and east of Firestone Auto Care.
On Thursday, the town’s Planning Commission will consider a preliminary site plat on 8.5 acres where the Sunrise GMC auto dealership was previously located.
The “fitness center subdivision” features four lots for buildings, including a 34,210-square-foot lot for LA Fitness. More than 230 parking spaces are also planned for the development.
The project is anticipated to be developed in two phases with multiple uses, with the first phase consisting of 8,500-square feet of of fast food and the centrally located LA Fitness building. Construction would be complete by the end of 2019.
The second phase would consist of additional office and retail space and is scheduled for completion in 2021.
The closest LA Fitness to Collierville is currently on Polo Grounds Blvd. just outside of Germantown.
The Addison at Collierville apartment complex will border the facility to the north.
