WAUWATOSA, WI— Milwaukee-based developer Mandel Group, Inc. announced Friday that Vita Fitness & Physical Therapy will open a new location in the restored building within the Milwaukee County Research Park. The historic building is located at 10460 Innovation Dr.

Restoration and reconstruction work is well underway to save and retrofit the 106 year-old building, originally built to provide steam and hot water to the historic Muirdale TB Sanitorium that once stood on the site. Only a few of the original buildings remain from the once-sprawling hospital campus.

This will be Vita's second location in the metro Milwaukee market. Vita’s flagship operation is located in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, at Mandel’s DoMUS apartment community on the Milwaukee River. Vita has been in business for 17 years as an independent, locally owned and operated heath care company that integrates physical therapy with personal fitness in a boutique gym environment.

Mandel is restoring the historic building as part of its Crescent Apartments development, opening in early May 2021. This new construction includes approximately 102 units at 10460 Innovation Drive. Adjacent to the apartments is a historic former powerhouse which is being converted to a restaurant.

Ally's Bistro of Menomonee Falls announced in August it is planning to open a second location in Wauwatosa in the 105-year-old, historic powerhouse building located at 10460 Innovation Drive, Wauwatosa, in the Milwaukee County Research Park. The new café will be known as "Ally's Powerhouse Café." The powerhouse building features stunning 27-foot ceilings, exposed brick, and expansive arched windows throughout that will make for a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

Crescent Apartments residents will enjoy membership access to Vita’s cardio and workout Upper Gymnasium. Full gym memberships are available to the public providing access to the Upper Gym as well as the signature Powerhouse Gymnasium featuring soaring 32-foot tall ceilings.
