A swimming school for children is the latest tenant to lease space at Flushing’s mega mixed-use development, the a 1.2 million-square-foot Tangram.

Goldfish Swim School will take over 8,000 square feet at 133-27 39th Ave. in the Tangram and will open by spring 2021.

The learn-to-swim facility will feature a 75-foot, three-lane pool with a viewing area for parents and caretakers as well as a snack bar. In addition to children’s swim lessons, the school will offer fun family swim sessions and special party packages for swimmers to host their birthday parties at the facility.

Goldfish Swim School – Flushing expects to accommodate more than 3,000 kids as well as their parents each week. The franchise is an official partner of the USA Swimming Foundation and has nearly 100 locations nationwide where more than 130,000 children — from infants to 12-year-olds — per week learn to swim across the country.

“In line with the company’s core values educating children on water safety while teaching them how to swim and respect water, Tangram is the ideal development to raise a family with recreational activities at their fingertips in Downtown Flushing,” said Robert Wineman, partner in BHB Group, the owner of Goldfish Swim School – Flushing at Tangram. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring Goldfish’s state-of-the-art swim facility, high quality instruction and impressive water safety curriculum to families in Flushing, Queens.”

The swim school joins a host of other tenants inside the new Tangram development, set to open in late 2020. A four-star hotel, state-of-the-art 4DX movie theater, beer garden, gym and several popular Asian restaurants have all signed leases within the mixed-use development.

Tangram also features two residential towers, an office tower, additional retail space and a 24,000-square-foot food hall.

“Retail nowadays needs to be rethought in such a way that it portrays experiences as opposed to traditional brick and mortar leasing,” said Helen Lee, Executive Vice President of F&T Group, which is developing Tangram with SCG America. “Tangram continues to exemplify this with the addition of experienced-based retailers such as Goldfish Swim School.”

The lease was facilitated by Steve Gillman from SCG Retail representing Goldfish Swim School and Seth Kessler and Ian Rice on behalf of SCG Retail representing Tangram.
