The Washington Business Journal has yet another article on the “gym wars” saga between Vida Fitness and Results with a piece last Friday, “Vida Fitness owner David von Storch offers grand vision for U St. club.” (See earlier posting, Results vs Vida: A “Gym Wars” Update.)

Fitness and brew pub entrepreneur David von Storch is planning the most elaborate branch of his Vida Fitness chain for 1612 U St. NW, a 40,000-square-foot building already the headquarters of von Storch’s various operations: Vida, Capital City Brewing Co. and Bang salons.

Will there really be a rooftop pool? From a streetscape-perspective, the interesting thing is that a drawing of the planned expansion shows the open space (currently a parking slab) between 1612 U Street and Stetson’s Bar at 1610 U Street being filled in by the 1612 expansion.
