Darien gym Dynamic Athletics has been evicted from its home in the Goodwives Shopping Center by landlord Urstadt Biddle Darien. According to gym owner Bill Gallagher, Dynamic Athletics had been in business for about four years before being ordered to shut down on March 31.
The eviction notice was served as a result of a longstanding disagreement between Urstadt Biddle and Dynamic Athletics, Gallagher said. The action was taken after several noise complaints by neighboring Goodwives tenant Andrew Stefanou Salon & Spa.
“Despite operating in accordance with their lease, Dynamic Athletics tried to minimize noise during salon hours to appease them and have cooperated in taking measures to insulate the bordering walls between them and the salon,” the gym said in a news release.
Gallagher maintained that the latest notice of the court action – the third – was mailed to an old address of his, delaying his response, instead of to the gym’s business address at 25 Old Kings Highway North, “where all previous correspondence from UB has been delivered from the beginning of the lease.”
Urstadt Biddle had no immediate comment.
