THE BRONX - A new gym is expected to open in Pelham Gardens in a vacant lot.

A Planet Fitness gym may be added to the site on East Gun Hill Road where Aldi Supermarket was located for several years. The large site has played host to several big-box stores and residents say they hope the gym is here to stay.

Community Board 11 voted yes to the new addition, and many residents say they are happy with the low-cost gym. However, the new center would need to be approved by the city?s Board of Standards and Appeals before construction can begin.
