Another locally owned business has sprouted in a new Short Pump development.
Sauna studio Purify has opened its second location at 301 Maltby Boulevard, Suite C in GreenGate, a 75-acre mixed-use project taking shape on West Broad Street.
The 1,700-square-foot studio features five private sauna rooms that are heated up to 140 degrees via infrared panels on the walls. Owner Mary Woodbridge opened her first location at 5609 Patterson Ave. in 2015, which remains in business. Forty-minute sessions for new customers are available at two for $35, with package and membership pricing also available.
Method Massage & Bodywork and Skin Care Loft are also subleasing in Purify’s new space. Method Massage also has room in Purify’s Patterson location, while Skin Care Loft is a new aesthetician practice by Olga Popova.
Touted as bringing an urban feel to the suburbs, GreenGate’s tenants have been gradually opening through 2017.
“There’s been a lot of foot traffic, even in just a week,” Woodbridge said.
Other locally owned shops and restaurants in the development include The Daily, Carytown Bicycle Co., Red Salt Chophouse & Sushi, Mango Salon and Ginger Juice Co., in addition to a Mellow Mushroom franchise from locals Jay Shah and Joel Gilbert.
GreenGate’s retail sector, dubbed The Row, has roughly 17,800 square feet across seven storefronts left to lease, while its anchor tenant, Lidl, opened in July. GreenGate’s two 45,000-square-foot office buildings are under construction.
The development will also feature more than 200 residential units in the form of townhomes, which are under construction with some completed units, and single-family detached homes.
