UNIONDALE, NEW YORK — Sahn Ward Coschignano, PLLC has announced that the Firm successfully represented Peloton in securing a special permit from the New York City Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) for a new fitness facility dedicated to treadmill-based workouts.

On April 10, 2018, the Firm secured a special permit from the BSA for a new fitness facility located at the corner of Greenwich Street and Christopher Street in the West Village. Peloton’s new location will comprise approximately 12,500 square feet and will house two production studios where it will livestream its new treadmill classes.

The facility is deemed a Physical Culture Establishment under the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, and requires a special permit from the BSA. The local community board unanimously supported Peloton’s application, and the Firm was able to obtain the special permit in just over seven months.

The matter was handled by Daniel H. Braff, a Member and Partner of the Firm’s New York City Land Use and Development practice. He concentrates his practice in zoning and land use planning, real estate, environmental and corporate law, with a particular emphasis on regulations governing the use and development of real property within New York City.

He provides zoning analyses, counsels clients in connection with development rights transfers (also known as “air rights”), advises on environmental matters, and represents clients before various city agencies, including the BSA, the City Planning Commission, the Department of Buildings and the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
