Bower Place marketing manager Adwoa Obrenu-Yamoah said the fitness facility will take up a portion of the space and plans are in the works for the remaining area.

“We and our leasing team have really been working hard on figuring out how to utilize that space properly and we’re really excited about what is to come,” she said.
