David Barton Gym Opening in July, but not at 15th & Walnut Streets

My friend Bill Reichert dropped me a note today telling me that the David Barton Gym is no longer planning to open at 15th and Walnut. He reached out to them and they said they are still looking in the Center City area, and think they’ll be open by July still? Hmm when is the cheesecake building opening? Where else might they put it, maybe the Wells Fargo building at Juniper and Walnut, while we’re thinking about it, this is the letter they sent to the early birds who signed up for David Barton Gym Memberships!
