Salon Republic, which rents shared workspaces to freelance hair stylists has leased the entire second floor of 8550 Santa Monica Blvd. formerly occupied by ‘The Wing’.
Michael Talla, owner and developer of the complex that spans from from Westbourne Drive to West Knoll Drive along Santa Monica Blvd. confirmed the news along with an anticipated Oct. 21 opening of the John Reed Fitness Center. Salon Republic will offer the opportunity to 85 small businesses owners to set up shop in the heart of West Hollywood. The complex is also home to Capitol Drugs, Sweat Yoga, Blu Nails, Rawberri and the YMLA shop. In addition the John Reed Fitness center will house a large juice bar cafe located between its main entrance and YMLA.
Changes to the complex will re-house the Blu Nails to within Salon Republic on the 2nd floor. A major branded coffee house will join the complex in an open space on the first floor. The last available space will house a rejuvenation spa.
The Sprouts location is still in the possession of the Sprouts corporation but Talla said he is working on a tenant and hopes to have an announcement in the next 60 days. WEHOville agreed to keep the tenant confidential but can describe it as an upscale market that is not currently serving the City of West Hollywood.
“Every tenant we have signed is an upgrade to the tenant who had previously occupied the space.”, said Talla. “The entire complex is leased”
