For its mega-expansion plan, SoulCycle is eyeing LA's mega-developments. In addition to landing at South Bay's The Point, the celebrity-frequented indoor cycling studio is opening one of its largest West Coast sweat sanctuaries at Culver City's The Platform this fall.
Development group Runyon confirms that the huge Hayden Tract space—which will be the fitness brand's 10th LA-area outpost—will also double as SoulCycle's West Coast HQ. As far as interior decor design touches, it'll "feature full-height glass and an airy indoor-outdoor flow overlooking an outdoor garden and terrace."
The luxury lifestyle center has already nabbed Aesop, Carven, Curve, footwear designer Matt Bernson, and we hear more deals are expected to be announced soon. No word yet on SoulCycle's exact opening date; stay tuned for more.
