Orangetheory Fitness, CorePower Yoga opening at Congressional Plaza in Rockville

After losing several tenants, Congressional Plaza in Rockville has been adding new ones in spades. Orangetheory Fitness and CorePower Yoga are the latest two officially announced by property owner Federal Realty. Both fitness facilities will be part of a new section of Congressional Plaza they are branding as FITRow.

One space remains to be filled in the FITRow section, which will be next to the future Barnes & Noble bookstore in the north wing of the property. Federal Realty says it found success with its original test of the FITRow concept at its Assembly Row property in Boston. I can say there has been a huge response to the recent announcement of Orangetheory's future location at 7900 Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Bethesda, which bodes well for a warm reception in Rockville.

“FITRow is a lifestyle, a community where people have access to several boutique studios that can evolve with their fitness wants and needs,” Federal Realty Director of Asset Management Kari Glinksi said in a statement this morning. Orangetheory and CorePower will both open in 2020.

  1. Guess your narrative about Congressional dying because MoCo is "moribund" didn't really pan out, eh? It's almost as if that bike shop closing all of its locations across the nation wasn't MoCo's fault. Who would have thunk.

    1. 10:24: Yeah, gyms are definitely giving us the edge over Northern VA with their Amazon HQ2, LOL. Thanks for the Bozo the Clown News Break. Now back to live coverage of the County Council trying to figure out how to open the door of their conference room to get out.

    1. LOL.
      "I wrote about a press release before you"

      Repeat after me- a press release is not a scoop.

      And stay away from the kids at the food court.

    4. 11:19: It appears Federal Realty supplied another website with the press release a day earlier. So your question should be directed to them, not to me, punk. For now, STFU.

    5. Punk. STFU.

      If you are the ‘only hyperlocal’ blog with thousands of readers Federal would have notified you first.

      If you are so important (impotent) you would have been you would have been invited to the senior housing ground breaking.

      You shouldn’t have to wait for a press release. A real journalist know how to investigate.

      Sure keep up with your cute little blog. Just know that is all this is.

      Go ahead call me names or joke about body slamming me. That just proves how weak you are. Delete my comment what ever. It sill won’t change the fact you a a bitter person.

    6. 6:03: I am the only current Rockville hyperlocal news site, so yes, I am important if you want to reach potential customers in Rockville.

      I haven't "waited" for anything, regularly breaking news that wasn't from a press release.

      Unfortunately, Boy Friday, this was a press release story, and the only issue is that said press release was emailed to me a day later than to another website. So your issue is with Federal Realty, not me.

      A loser attacking me anonymously from behind a computer in a dark room is hardly in a position to call others "weak."

      So, indeed, STFU.
