Greenwich office park on west side to gain a new fitness center after P&Z approval for Barry's Bootcamp – Greenwich Time

A Barry’ Bootcamp fitness operation has been approved to open at an office building at the Greenwich Park complex off Weaver Street and West Putnam Avenue.
GREENWICH — More fitness and sporting facilities are coming to the west end of town.
The Planning & Zoning Commission approved an application to allow a new fitness center in the large office complex off Weaver Street and East Putnam Avenue. Barry’s Bootcamp will open there, offering clients “high-intensity interval workouts,” according to the organization.
It will be the first opening in Connecticut for the international chain of fitness clubs.
A golf training facility was also authorized for East Putnam Avenue last month by the Planning & Zoning Commission.
The P&Z Commission authorized a “change of use,” or a different kind of operation, from office to fitness at Building 5 Greenwich Office Park to allow for Barry’s Bootcamp.
The commissioners went over some traffic issues regarding the application and recommended that the administrators of the large office complex put in more signs at the site, noting that the layout there could be confusing to some drivers.
More signs were recommended for the complex “so anybody coming in is not wandering around to get to right to the garage,” Commissioner Nick Macri said.
Kevin Molnar, a designer working on the project, said more signs will be part of the project. “We would put some signage in, certainly, to help people find their way,” he said, “That’s part of the program.”
The classes at Barry’s Bootcamp will have a capacity for 45 clients, but about 20 clients in a class would be the more typical number, the application states.
No one from the public spoke on the application Tuesday before the approval was granted for Barry’s Bootcamp.
