North Carolina-based Triangle Rock Club announced earlier this week that it will build their fifth location in a former Walmart building in Durham. Construction will be done in two phases and will eventually account for 32,000 square feet. The first phase will get the gym up and running in Durham, while the second phase will include a roof lift and additional square feet to accommodate taller walls.
“We’ve been searching for the right opportunity to expand into Durham for nearly 4 ½ years, and we’ve found the perfect location for our newest (and largest) facility,’ said Triangle Rock Club Managing Partner Joel Graybeal in a statement.
Graybeal further added, “We have a loyal and dedicated customer base in the Triangle. Our Durham and Chapel Hill members have been diligent about driving to our Morrisville and Raleigh locations. The Durham addition will be significantly more convenient for our guests who live and work on the west side of the Triangle.”
