Glover Park Hardware and Washington Sports Club will remain open during a major revamp of their home at 2251 Wisconsin Ave., according to Gordon Nielsen of Summit Commercial Real Estate. Nielsen and business partner Guy d’Amecourt recently brokered the complex’s sale to a joint venture of Altus Realty Partners, Chesapeake Realty Partners, and Ellisdale Construction for $20.1 million.

The buyers plan to install a new glass facade and renovate the retail space, which includes a vacant storefront formerly leased by MyerEmco. In addition, they will construct an 81-unit apartment building with two levels of underground parking on land now covered by a rear parking lot. “The apartments will average 635 square feet with a mix of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units looking to target young professionals,” states a press release provided by Nielsen. “The property overlooks the parkland of the Naval Observatory and Vice President’s residence.” The garage will include 97 parking spaces, Nielsen said, but he did not know how many of these would be reserved for tenants.

Balance Gym’s marketing annex at 2241 Wisconsin is up and running: running straight for members of Washington Sports Club next door at 2251 Wisconsin. Though Balance owner Graham King had told us the new storefront would be used to promote spa services—”(massages/facials/sauna/steam/etc)”—at SomaSpa, which shares Balance’s 2121 Wisconsin location, a Balance tout spent this morning handing out cards flogging the gym’s new membership deal: $59/month if you sign up by June 30. (There’s also a onetime initiation fee of $99, but it’s credited towards personal training or spa services.)

Meanwhile, a whiteboard in WSC’s lobby announces discounts that gym has negotiated for its members with local merchants. With your WSC member barcode, you’ll get the following deals:

  • 15% off meals at Kavanagh’s at 2400 Wisconsin;
  • 50% off games and 10% off food and drink at Breadsoda at 2233 Wisconsin;
  • 15% off services at Hair Lounge at 2201 Wisconsin;
  • 15% off hair services on your first visit to Elite for Hair at 2315 Wisconsin; and
  • $6.45 games and free shoes on Tuesdays at Strike Bowling Alley at 5353 Westbard Avenue in Bethesda.

Will the neighborhood’s other gyms, BodySmith at 2200 Wisconsin and Elements Fitness & Wellness Center inside 2233 Wisconsin, leap into the fray?
