The Mayor and the Aberdeen Township Council are pleased to report that L.A. Fitness has signed a lease to become the new anchor of the former A&P shopping center on Rte. 35 and Cliffwood Ave. The state-of-the-art fitness center will occupy 34,000 square feet of the 56,000-square-foot A&P building. The landlord expects them to open in about a year due to the complexities of subdividing and reimagining the former supermarket space—which will include a new façade, new heating and air conditioning, etc.
“L.A. Fitness will be an excellent amenity for residents of Cliffwood and Cliffwood Beach, and other parts of Aberdeen and neighboring towns,” said Mayor Fred Tagliarini. “With this strong anchor in place, we believe that the landlord will be well-positioned to recruit new retail and service tenants to this strategically-located property, and help our efforts to rejuvenate the Rte. 35 corridor.”
We will keep you posted on the property’s progress.
