An "Om"-azing Makeover

August 29, 2019

One Point One (1.1) Yoga opened an additional space down the street from their original studio and called it One Point Two (1.2).

"Working with Vadim Simonovsky is great. He is a property owner on Penn Avenue in Garfield and is a friend to many of the other small businesses and property owners in the neighborhood.

Vadim heard about the URA's programs while in a yoga class with a URA staffer, and has used our Streetface Loan Program twice to transform two properties in Garfield, one of them at 5019 Penn Avenue. The tenant of his building at 5019 Penn is 1.2 Yoga, where Vadim is a student. Formerly, the building was vacant and at risk of demolition."
