Aug 25, 2016

X Team International, an international alliance of retail real estate advisors with expertise in more than 45 major markets throughout the U.S. and Canada, announced today that partner, Venture Commercial Real Estate, a commercial real estate brokerage firm, represented LA Fitness to complete a land acquisition in Round Rock, Texas, to build on their central Texas expansion. Venture Commercial Partner John Zikos made the announcement.
The 37,000-square-foot fitness center will be located at the crossroads of E. Palm Valley Boulevard and N. A.W. Grimes Boulevard on a 4.7-acre land tract purchased by LA Fitness. H-E-B Plus anchors the development with an expanded store format. LA Fitness is slated to open summer 2017.

“This is an exciting milestone for LA Fitness’ development as it continues its aggressive Central Texas expansion,” said Zikos. “It was important for us to capitalize on the rapid growth Round Rock is experiencing, and we were able to find a highly trafficked location on the east side to better serve the on-the-go community.”

Zikos, along with Venture’s Jonathan Cooper and Cheryl Hill, represented LA Fitness in the transaction, working with Walt Brown, Jr. and Tim Dolander of Diversified Partners. Brett Baker with HEB Grocery Company represented the seller.
