Construction Clutters Parking Lot at LA Fitness [PHOTOS]

The fenced-off site currently takes up much of the shopping center.

Detour signs, fences, and torn-up blacktop currently make up a majority of the parking lot in front of the soon-to-be LA Fitness in the Branch Shopping Plaza.

Construction began on the gym began in January, the former home to Waldbaums, which closed in April of last year.

Check out our gallery of the construction currently going on in the shopping center.

Have you had trouble visiting the businesses surrounding the future home of the gym? Has traffic in this shopping center changed dramatically since construction began? Let us know in the comments.

There is really nothing there to go to. Maybe Old Street, but thats it. Too bad, its the center of "downtown".

With June Claire Dance Center a few doors down from LA Fitness...it will be a nightmare parking in September and also once the gym opens. Does anyone know an opening date for this gym?

I'm still annoyed as can be that we get a gym instead of a grocery store! How many gyms do we need!!!!

More the merrier. Too many fat people out there. Maybe given more options, they will walk in to a gym one day (and use it).

Waldbaums probably contributed to obesity, hopefully the gym will help do the opposite. It's a good change. Embrace it.
