Wauwatosa, Wisc. (January 22, 2021) – Milwaukee-based developer Mandel Group, Inc. announced today that Vita Fitness & Physical Therapy will open a new location in the restored M10 Building within the Milwaukee County Research Park. Mandel is restoring the historic building as part of its Crescent Apartments development, opening in early May 2021. 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. Specializing in a medically based approach to exercise, flexibility and mobility, Vita caters to a wide array of clientele including patients suffering from chronic health conditions, those recovering from surgery and requiring recuperative physical therapy, and competitive athletes and fitness enthusiasts looking to sharpen their performance. Offered services include physical therapy, personal training, app-based fitness routines, gym memberships, nutrition coaching, and therapeutic massage. Vita is led by Dr. Tommy Grabowski PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS. Full details of the Vita experience can be found at Vita is often referred by leading orthopedic surgeons as a post-surgery PT resource.

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. “We are thrilled to be expanding our services and growing our reach through this partnership. We were immediately drawn to the aesthetics of this historic and unique facility” commented Dr. Grabowski. “This is an ideal location, close to our referring doctors and easily accessible to the western metro area via Interstate 94 and US Highway 45.”

Along with Vita, M10 will become home to Ally’s Powerhouse Café, a second location being opened by the owners of Ally’s Bistro of Menomonee Falls. As well, Mandel will house its property management staff in the building’s office and reception area. Preleasing of Crescent’s luxury apartments is underway for May 1st occupancy.

The historic building is located at 10460 Innovation Drive in the Milwaukee County Research Park.
