Sport Chalet has completed a lease for a spot at the new Figat7th.

The national sports chain, Sport Chalet, announced it will be joining the ranks of retailers at the $40-million Downtown development, Figat7th.

The athletics store will take over 26,800 square feet of space on the courtyard level, and join the site's highly anticipated Target.

"The majority of the residential and professional populations of downtown are young, upwardly mobile, and health-conscious consumers," said Ed Hogan, National Director of Retail Leasing for Brookfield Office Properties. "They are interested in exercise and sporting activities, as evidenced by the success of the Gold’s Gym already operating at FIGat7th.”

Hogan added that Sport Chalet will cater to Downtowners' need for sporting gear and equipment. The athletics retailer has 54 stores throughout California, Utah, Arizona and Nevada and sell a range of workout apparel, snowboarding gear, cycling supplies and more. The original Chalet store was founded in La Cañada Flintridge more than 50 years ago.

The Figueroa and 7th Street development will also be home to an Lamill and a 500-seat, gourmet food court dubbed, Taste. Taste will also host a Loteria Grill, Oleego by Park's Barbeque, Indus, Choppe Choppe and Juicy Lucy.
