Kickboxing studio joins lineup at popular shopping center

Simone Development Companies has announced that CKO Kickboxing has signed a new 10-year lease at the Throggs Neck Shopping Center. The shopping center is located at 815 Hutchinson River Parkway in the Ferry Point community. The affordable fitness kickboxing studio is already open for business.

The Throggs Neck Shopping Center is one of the Bronx’ most successful large-scale retail developments. Conveniently located at the intersection of Lafayette Avenue and the Hutchinson River Parkway, the 30,000 square-foot shopping center is anchored by one of the best-selling Target stores in the nation and is home to 27 retailers and restaurants.

Simone Development Companies was represented in-house by Joanna Simone, vice president of leasing and property management operations. CKO Kickboxing was represented by Karnit Moshery and Janine Kemm from Royal Properties.

“We are thrilled to welcome CKO Kickboxing to their first location in the Bronx,” said Simone. “This fantastic retail center is a perfect example of Simone Development Companies’ commitment towards contributing to the transformation and revitalization of the Bronx, in this case through the re-purposing of a vacant and under-utilized commercial property to what it is today. We are confident CKO Kickboxing will seamlessly fit in with our terrific roster of tenants in serving the local community.”

CKO Kickboxing joins a number of well-known retailers and restaurants, including Target, TJ Maxx, Mattress Firm, Petco, Sketchers, Metro Optics, Party City, European Wax Center, Boutique Realty, Beyond Vape, Professional Physical Therapy, AFC Urgent Care, Kudos Beauty Supply, Covenant Dentistry, Paradise Nails & Spa, Rite for Business Check Cashing, T-Mobile, Starbucks, Wine and Liquor Superstore, Applebee’s, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Subway, Doctors Express, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, Havana Express and Sarku Japan.

Simone Development Companies acquired the 7.9-acre site, across from Msgr. Scanlan High School, in 2011 and transformed it from a closed USPS equipment transfer station to the modern and successful shopping center. The property was developed in partnership by Simone Development Companies with Aaron Malinsky of Curbcut Urban Partners and Paul Slayton of Slayton Investments. It includes free on-site parking.
