Brisbane’s mega fitness centre arrives on Ann St

19 March 2024

A new generation of health, fitness and wellbeing has come to Brisbane, with a world-renowned performance and recovery centre opening on Ann Street.

EMF Performance and Recovery Centre is a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness destination, bringing athlete-quality training facilities to inner-city commuters.

The luxe 4-level fitness hub spans some 3,000 square metres at Quanta Investment Funds’ 157 Ann Street; a $10 million fitout that includes the latest gym equipment, technology, recovery and wellness experiences.

Those 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.

“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 state-of-the-art centre 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.

“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,” Carrigan said.

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 21 March, offering FREE entry all day, facility tours, LSKD, International Protein and Red Dragon tastings, deals and prizes, functional challenges, membership discounts and more.
