Gym and Hair Salon to Open at The Gateway in South Orange

By: Carolyn Maynard-Parisi

Three retailers will be opening up shop within the next few months at The Gateway in South Orange, the mixed-used luxury residential and retail development at 9 W. South Orange Avenue.

The building features 57 one- and two-bedroom apartments and 9,100 square feet of retail space divided into three spaces.

D&I Fitness will be moving to a larger space — and maintaining its current location on Scotland Road — by the end of June, said Ayuso. The Gateway location will offer teen fitness, speed and agility training, sports performance training, group and private training. The gym will be equipped with state-of-the-art exercise equipment including a turf track and a Muay Thai kickboxing ring. The Scotland Road location will become D&I Kids.

The newest tenant is Y Gallery Salon, a high-end unisex hair salon that has a location in Manhattan’s Soho.  “The [salon] owners [Yoni Kreger and Yaniv Levi] moved to South Orange last year, and have seen what’s going on in the town” and wanted to be a part of it, Ayuso said. “South Orange is a place that can warrant this type of salon. We need it [and] we don’t want to lose people to businesses in Maplewood and Millburn, when they can shop and stay right here.”
