A growing Baltimore nonprofit founded by former pro-lacrosse player Matt Hanna has leased a high-profile space at Belvedere Square to grow its program to help city youth strengthen their academics.
Next One Up signed a lease to take over the former Brick Bodies gym at Belvedere Square that sits at the corner of York Road and Belvedere Avenue in North Baltimore.
The group will open in 14,000 square feet of space there next spring, Hanna said Wednesday. The building has been vacant since Brick Bodies closed in August 2020.
