BUSHWICK — A rock climbing chain is opening a location in Bushwick, the gym and a property broker announced Friday.

MetroRock Climbing will be moving into a building at 321 Starr St., according to the company and DY Realty Services, which brokered a $9 million sale of the building to Cayuga Capital.

MetroRock Climbing, which already has three locations in New England, is expected to open in late spring 2016, according to a statement from the company.

It will have more than 23,000 square feet of climbing space, 45-foot tall rope climbing walls and yoga rooms.

Previous reports said that The Whiskey Brooklyn, owned by brothers George and Justin Ruotolo, would be opening in the space, but George Ruotolo said this isn't true.

More commercial tenants for the property will be announced in the future.

The new property joins the growing commercial corridor surrounding the Jefferson Street L stop.

Anticipated Italian restaurant Faro opened a block away just this week, joining restaurants and bars like The Shop Brooklyn and Montana's Trail House, both of which opened in the last year.
