Becica Associates LLC (BA) assisted MRB Properties in their efforts to transform the Grant Building, constructed in the early 1900’s as a retail establishment, into a thriving exercise and yoga studio. Amenities include a yoga and barre studio, cycling room, lite eatery and juice bar, retail area, offices, toilet rooms, showers, and changing areas.

BA provided a structural condition assessment and Architectural and Engineering Services including design for structural alterations and interior fitout for the 4800 sq. ft. facility. The electrical system was replaced and new roof top heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units were provided.

The original brick party walls were left exposed and new luxury vinyl imitation wood flooring was installed. The windows were replaced and the original tin ceiling, plaster work, and wood mouldings were restored. Existing brick party wall openings have been infilled to provide retail display areas and storage for exercise equipment. Interior lighting fixtures and custom fabricated furniture tie into the exercise cycling theme.
