NEW YORK —RKF, the country’s leading independent real estate firm specializing in retail leasing, investment sales and consulting services, announced today that it has secured a 3,520-square-foot space for NOVA Fitness at 551 Madison Avenue. This will be the boutique fitness studio’s second location and is expected to open this summer.
RKF Director Michael Paster represented NOVA Fitness in the transaction. The landlord, Lexin Capital LLC, was represented in-house.
Nova Fitness will be located on the third floor of 551 Madison Avenue. The 150,000-square-foot, 17-story building is on the northeast corner of Madison Avenue and East 55th Street in the Plaza District. The thriving retail, office and residential neighborhood is near iconic New York hotels such as The St. Regis and Four Seasons Hotel.

In December 2017, RKF represented Nova Fitness in the lease for its first location, which is scheduled to open this summer at 249 Church Street in Tribeca.
