Members of a local upscale fitness club will soon be looking for a place to park.
Apex Clean Energy—a company devoted to developing, constructing and operating wind and solar power facilities—announced plans March 1 to build a new headquarters on Garrett Street to house its 170 local employees who are currently spread out among three offices in town. The seven-story, 130,000-square-foot building will go right atop the downtown ACAC Fitness & Wellness Center’s gravel parking lot.
“We are happy to have Apex coming in as our neighbor,” says Meghan Hammond, senior marketing director of the fitness club. Staff is currently working on ways to “ease parking challenges” during construction.
