Spenga, a Chicago-based boutique fitness studio, is entering the Texas market with its first location in Montrose.
The company leased 4,011 square feet at 307 Westheimer Road, and it’s planning additional Houston locations, according to JLL. Spenga’s name is an amalgam of spin, strength and yoga, and it combines cardio, strength and flexibility in 60-minute, high-intensity interval training sessions.
JLL’s Matt Parsons is representing Spenga in its Houston expansion, and Chris Dray of NewQuest Properties represented the landlord, Lower Westheimer Center LP, in the Montrose lease.
The Montrose location is on the second floor of a new two-story retail development that’s expected to deliver later this year, according to JLL. According to LoopNet, 2,000 square feet is available for lease on the first floor.
Owners of longtime Italian restaurant Michelangelo’s sold the property in March, according to Swamplot.
The location is near the border between Montrose and Midtown, and it’s also 404 yards from the future home of a Whole Foods Market, according to LoopNet. Construction of that project, which is expected to be the first mixed-use residential-grocery midrise in Houston, began earlier this year. A Pearl-branded apartment complex with 264 residential units will sit atop the 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods.
