EMF Performance and Recovery Centre opens multi level fitness and wellness hub in Brisbane

EMF Performance and Recovery Centre opens multi level fitness and wellness hub in Brisbane
March 19, 2024

EMF Performance and Recovery Centre has opened a four level fitness and wellness hub spanning 3,000 metre² at Quanta Investment Funds’ 157 Ann Street Brisbane.

The $10 million fitout includes the latest gym equipment, technology, recovery and wellness experiences and offers athlete-quality training facilities to inner-city commuters.

Experiences include a snow room, hot and cold recovery pools, meditation room, spin and pilates studios, co-working spaces, and 24/7 access to elite strength and conditioning training.

EMF Performance and Recovery Centre Director Scott Freeman said it’s now more convenient than ever for city commuters to get athlete-quality training and recovery and shared “with industry-leading equipment, expansive group fitness rooms, and specialised training and recovery zones, we’re really proud to have created the premier sports performance and recovery facility in Queensland.”

The fitness and wellness hub is EMF’s Brisbane flagship and Quanta’s latest tenant to move into 157 Ann Street, bringing the building to 100% occupancy.

Quanta Investment Funds Head of Property Investments Chris Carrigan said the centre’s fitout was completed under budget, an impressive feat given current construction cost challenges.

Carrigan noted “we’re very proud to be working with EMF, and to have completed a very challenging construction delivery to convert office space to pools, recovery facilities, strength and training and relaxation. We think the addition of EMF is great for the Brisbane CBD and the value created throughout the process is an excellent outcome for our investors.”

Quanta acquired the Ann Street property in 2022 for $39 million, and with commencement of EMF’s 10-year lease agreement, have now achieved a valuation of $59 million.

EMF Ann Street’s grand opening will take place on Thursday 21st March, offering free entry all day, facility tours, LSKD, International Protein and Red Dragon tastings, deals and prizes, functional challenges, membership discounts and more.
